What is the taste of pea microgreens?

Not only are pea microgreens delicious, but they also make for an eye-catching garnish that will elevate any dish to a whole new level of awesomeness.
And here're the best parts:
- They're not as delicate as other microgreens, like amaranth, which means pea shoots are perfect for both restaurant chefs looking to impress and regular folks like you and me who want to add a touch of elegance to our home-cooked meals. 🍽️💚
- They have quite univertal taste, so people likes it.
- Pea microgreens with the prices around 3-8 euro per kg are effective but relatively cheaper than some other microgreens like Nasturtium (35 e/kg), Coriander (30 e/kg) or Amaranth (60e/kg).
- Prices per kg of course depends from order quantities. If you order in bulk always ask the supplier for better price!
