It’s been recently reported that red cabbage microgreens help reduce LDL cholesterol.*

Red cabbage has been a staple in a variety of dishes to add flavor and color. Today, we’re learning the benefits of red cabbage in microgreen form can help reduce bad cholesterol. Albeit at the moment it’s only officially helping animals in the studies, so whereas enjoying red cabbage microgreens can’t ‘officially’ help you, it won’t hurt you either.

At our locally owned and operated Black Pearl Ann Arbor restaurant, we serve up red cabbage microgreens along with a variety of other seedlings like:

  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Arugula
  • Cilantro
  • Radish
  • Amaranth
  • Scallion
  • Mustard
  • Basil
  • Mizuna
  • Pac Choi

All the above are grown onsite in Black Pearl Gardens growing room just off the kitchen. With only 10 feet from the kitchen to the growing room, you know your vegetables are freshly cut and carefully plated, providing you the most flavorful, healthiest microgreens around.
