How to Grow Microgreens at Home: A Hamama Greens Review

Jump to RecipeMicrogreens growing.

Growing microgreens at home is a super simple process once you get the hang of it. I have tried a few different processes, but recently I tried the Hamama microgreens kit and it made it much easier.

How to grow microgreens without soil?

Since you aren’t growing the seeds to their full size you don’t need a ton of soil or nutrients for the seeds to root in. All you need in water to get them to start growing.

It takes about 1 week to get full grown microgreens after starting them. It depends on the variety so it might vary a day to 2.

To grow them, fill the grow container up with water to the fill line. Then add in the seed sheet and hold down for 10 seconds to soak the seeds. The seeds will start to sprout after a few days. When they are pushing up on the paper cover, remove the paper and let the greens grow.

How to harvest and store microgreens

When you are ready to harvest your microgreens, cut them at the base with a knife or scissors. I like to store them in a stasher bag or a glass container. If you want them to stay a little longer, add in a piece of paper towel to the container. This helps wick away excess moisture so they don’t wilt as quickly.

Microgreens don’t stay good for very long so try to use them within 3-5 days after harvesting.

Most of the time I use them as soon as I cut them. If they start to wilt in the grow container, try adding a little more water to help them stay a little longer.

How to use microgreens

You can use microgreen the same way you would use regular lettuce in a salad. You can also use them as a topping to a meal like you would herbs. I love adding a handful on top of pasta, veggie bowls, rice bowls, roasted vegetables, sandwiches, and salad.

Microgreens are very versatile in how you can use and enjoy them.

My favorite types of microgreens

There are so many microgreens you can grow. I normally have a variety to choose from so i can mix it up each week. Here are a few of my favorites.

Zesty Salad Mix Microgreens

This is a spicy mix that you can use as a salad. You can also use it to top sandwiches or roasted veggies. I love to add it on top of this sweet potato hash recipe.

Radish Microgreens

Radish microgreens might be my favorite one to grow because they sprout so quickly and they grow really well. I love adding these to veggie bowls, top my ramen, or add into a salad.

Broccoli Microgreens

Broccoli microgreens are one of the healthiest microgreens you can grow. I try to add a handful of these into my salad. One of my favorite salad to add them to is this healthy greek salad.

Fenugreek Microgreens

Fenugreek is a unique microgreen that I like to grow because it is hard to find otherwise. I love adding this in my Indian dishes and curries.

Would I recommend Hamama Microgreens Kit

Yes! The Hamama kit is so easy to use. I like that it doesn’t take up much space in my house. I don’t need any lights or grow set up. I love that I can compost most of the items after growing so it reduces that my waste.

They have so many options that make is fun to always try something new.

There is a subscription model if you want to use it. I don’t always love subscription based items so I typically just buy a large pack when I need.

They also have different options fo the grow container. I have the ceramic tray. You can also buy the plastic one with the wood cover.
