Sometimes the best applications of a tool are not the intended ones (think: using a hammer to crush graham crackers for a cheesecake crust, or repurposing an old flat file to hold kitchen linens). We celebrate these innovations, even when we don't see them coming.
So when I was doing my daily scroll through the new posts in our (Not)Recipes app last night, I halted on—and then did a little happy dance because of—a post that used our app in a completely new way.
Instead of describing how to make a dish on the fly—as the app was created specifically to help you do—Puja's post shares how to grow microgreens. As someone who once edited a thousand-word article on the matter, I know that the indoor gardening of microgreens is easy to overcomplicate. So what I love about Puja's method is that it's got all the information you need in about 26 words and an image.
Here's Puja's excellent post, broken down to show exactly how helpful each part of it is.
And the good news is that the conversation need not stop. You might chime in yourself to ask Puja which tools are best for harvesting (I know that plain old scissors work, but there might be a better solution!) and storing them. So despite the fact that it's not dinner—yet!—this post is exactly the kind of quick and easy good advice that we're hoping to see more and more of on (Not)Recipes.
