Radish Microgreens $3.00 per 2 ounce bag
The pleasantly peppery radish microgreens, which boast a flavor similar to that of root radishes They are extremely low in calories, and rich in beneficial nutrients- such as enzymes, antioxidants, protein, minerals and vitamins- and provide a sense of fullness after eating.
Sunflower Shoots $3.00 per 2 ounce bag
Look no further than sunflower microgreens! Graced with a nutty flavor and a crunchy texture, sunflower microgreens are nothing short of awesome in sandwiches, soups, salads, scrambled eggs, and wraps. Both the leaves and the stems are edible.
Baby Red Russian Kale $4.00 per 5 ounce Bag
Kale is a member of the cabbage family and has a strong, pungent taste. Most people enjoy it in salads or use it for juicing, but we like it in black bean kale burritos or on pineapple, ham, and kale pizza! When paired with something that has a little fat in it (which releases the nutrients inside it) kale has 12 vitamins and minerals inside it.
Carrots $3.00 per 3/4 Pound Bundle
Some carrot varieties are more sugary, others are more parsley flavored, and others naturally woody in taste. We tend to stay with carrots that have high sugar content and in our opinion are best enjoyed raw.
Oregano $14.00 per Pound
We sell the common, Italian oregano that is generally used in pizza and sauces.
Turnips $3.00 per 1/2 Pound Bundle
Unlike other turnip varieties, hakurei do not need to be cooked. They have an even-textured density and the flavor pairs well with a variety of different food items. Eat them raw (just whole, or chopped/grated in salads), make a quick pickle, or cook with their greens to enhance their natural sweetness. White and red.
Pea Shoots $3.00 per 2 ounce bag
Nearly all leafy green vegetables are very nutritious and low in calories, and pea shoots are no exception. They’re a good source of beta carotene, vitamin C, folate, and fiber. Pea shoots are the leaves and tendrils of pea plants, usually sugar snap peas. But they’re so much more than that. With their celery-green leaves and wispy curlicues. Pea Shoots taste like sugar snap peas — refreshingly crisp and sweet.
Arugula $4.00 per 4 ounce bag
Although typically arugula is best in the Spring and Fall seasons, there are heat tolerant varieties that grow well in the heat. This peppery herb can be used to spice up and add flavor to just about any dish.
Salad Mix $4.00 per 5 ounce bag
A salad should be more than just iceberg lettuce and salad dressing. Strong Roots believes that a salad should be a whole meal. Our salad mix includes not just salanova lettuce but seasonal greens that could include mizuna, spinach, kale, tatsoi, arugula, red amaranth, microgreens, and even edible flowers.
Beets $3.00 per Bundle of Three
The root vegetables are making a comeback! This tangy, earthy root vegetable is known to provide athletes longer endurance and stamina because it increases the nitrate levels and reduces oxygen requirements.
Kohlrabi $4.00 per Bundle of Three
Kohlrabi is a member of the cabbage family, and as such, comes with this family’s signature sweet-but-peppery flavor profile. We usually eat the bulbous bottom, but the entire kohlrabi plant is actually edible. Our kids line up for this exceptionally sweet morsel every time we harvest.
Remember When $15.00 (2 oz bottle with dropper)
Remember When contains the powerful combination of ginkgo and gotu kola leaf, rosemary, peppermint, and ginger. The research behind gotu kola leaf suggests that it improves both learning and memory by increasing antioxidant levels in the blood. The extract from ginkgo leaves is used as a dietary supplement for many conditions, including dementia, eye problems, intermittent claudication (leg pain caused by narrowing arteries), tinnitus, and other health problems. Rosemary, on the other hand, reduces the oxidative damage to the brain with it’s powerful antioxidant activity. And let’s not forget ginger that acts as an anti-inflammatory. This anti-inflammatory property is important since many brain disorders including depression, anxiety, ADHD, brain fog, and Alzheimer’s are linked to chronic inflammation of the brain.
