5 day Kaiware Daikon Radish Timelapses | Spicy Japanese Microgreens 🌱

I love microgreens.

How about you? 

To my knowledge, there are no other plants like microgreens that can go from seed to harvest in less than a week.

This is why I love microgreens.

Even better is they pack a punch in terms of flavor and are also quite nutritious.

Plus they’re so colorful and somewhat cute.

This most recent grow features green stem, red stem and purple stem kaiware daikon radishes.

Ready to watch them grow?

Here’s what happens over a 5 day period after sowing the seeds, using nothing but water and coconut coir.

Also, in case you missed it, here was the first 5 Day Timelapse of 3 Types of Kaiware Daikon Sprouts – 

How do I eat my kaiware daikon radish microgreens?

Well, I’m glad you asked!

In many different ways!!

You can put the kaiware in soups, salads, sandwiches, sushi, pasta, or serve as a garnish!

See below for some kaiware daikon radish inspiration!

 

If that doesn’t inspire you to try your hand at growing microgreens, I’m not sure what will!

      yes! they’re just like sprouts, the only difference is you let them grow a bit longer and dont eat the entire thing (just the top part!)
