Microgreen recipes

Perfect for your day

We have prepared a few delicious recipes for you. Of course, you can also create your own creations and just try them out. We wish you e Guete!

Regional is cool!

One day we received an email from a customer near Lucerne. She gave us a great hint that we should also include the products used in the microgreen recipes in our sustainability mission.

It's interesting, sometimes things are obvious, yet you don't think of them yourself! For this reason, we would like to encourage you here to use as many regional foods as possible in the preparation of your dishes. And if possible, to avoid imported foods - even if you can still find them in some of our "old" recipes.

In any case, we'll be paying close attention from now on!
