Check out Roberto, our founder, droppin knowledge re: #sunflower shoots. 🌻🌱 Not only are #sunflowershoots loaded with protein, but they’re also replete with stress-busting vitamin B and hormone-balancing zinc.  And if these #nutritionfacts bring up thoughts of endless salads made with green stuff that looks + tastes like something yanked from the blades of a jammed lawnmower, you’ll def be pleasantly surprised by their exquisite flavor: The stem gives way to a tender pop at first bite, followed by a refreshing crunch with hints of almond and lemon.🍋 . You’d never expect that something so green + good for you could be this freakin tasty. 🤤 . . #microgreens #micros

Snacks always hit the spot, whether you’re watching the game 🏟 , enjoying the #puppybowl 🐶, or doing #sundayfunday by chillin out, maxin, relaxin all cool 😎 (#freshprinceofbelair for eva, baby). It starts with a few chips, some wings, pretzels, and Fritos... and before you know it, you’re down for the count with a serious junk food hangover. Ugh. And the short-term snack high is rarely worth that gross hungover 😵 feeling for the rest of the day, right?  What if you could enjoy a flavorful dip paired with pita chips just as much (or more!) as all those processed, pre-packaged snacks combined? Presented for your approval is our Special #sunflower 🌻 🌱 Artichoke Dip. The recipe below makes ~5 cups of healthy, hearty deliciousness—enjoy!  #whenidipyoudipwedip 🎵 . . . Ingredients •8 to 10 oz of #sunflowershoots #micros, washed and finely chopped •14 ounces (about 1 can) of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped •16 oz of cream cheese, room temperature •2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese •1 cup shredded provolone cheese •¼ cup plain yoghurt . •Salt and pepper to taste  Preparation •Preheat oven to 375 degrees. •Mix all ingredients thoroughly and put in a shallow baking pan (9-inch square works), spreading evenly. Bake uncovered in preheated oven 25 minutes. •Serve hot with pita chips (we like homemade, but we’ll vouch for @stacys from the store), tortilla chips, or carrot+celery 🥕 sticks (crudités if you’re fancy). 🍽 😊 . . . . • • •  #standwithsmallfarms👊 #eatlocal #buylocal #sustainablefarming #sustainability #denver #farmtotable #locallygrown #organic #produce 🥑🥦🥒#eatclean #freshfood #303 #denverproud #knowyourfarmer #coloradoproud #denvereats #boulder #denverfoodie #foodasmedicine #coloradogrown #microgreens #imwithkap
