This vibrant green hummus has a slightly peppery flavor due to the micro arugula that I added to the mix. Micro arugula is a “micro green” . Micro greens from a variety of 25 different vegetables contained higher concentrations of vitamins and carotenoids than their fully grown counterparts. Some studies suggest it’s 4 to 6 times the amount. Microgreens are more tender than their mature counterparts, but they have just as much flavor. Micro greens are grown in soil which increases their beneficial nutrients and they’re harvested between 7 to 14 days after germination. Unlike micro greens, sprouts are grown in water.
