To grow cress indoors, simply line a punnet or tray with wet tissue or cotton wool. Then evenly sprinkle the cress seed over the base. Sound simple?
Cress is a powerhouse micro green vegetable that packs several important nutrients but is extremely low in calories. It contains a wealth of antioxidants and it’s also a good source of minerals that protect your bones.
Why not have a go…
- Fold some toilet paper or kitchen roll in half.
- Sprinkle a generous layer of cress seeds evenly over the paper
- Cover the tray
It’s a great way to teach children about micro greens 🥬
In about two weeks, crisp, flavourful cress is ready for use in salads and sandwiches. Easy!
