Pea Shoots are the young leaves of a pea plant. This freshly harvested salad leaf is jam-packed with Vitamins A, C and folic acid. They are extremely nutritious and have a delicious garden pea flavour. They are quick and easy to prepare and unbelievably good for you, the perfect combination of healthy and tasty.
Pea Shoots are versatile and can can be incorporated into many dishes, whether they are chopped into marinades, wilted into pasta, baked with meat or fish, stir-fried or eaten just as they are in a healthy salad – they go great with everything!
Because we harvest our kale when it is only a few weeks old GrowUp’s Kale Mix is much more tender than you would normally expect, making it really versatile and accessible whilst still being super nutritious. Our Kale mix is perfect for a winter salad, wilted down in a frying pan as a side to a delicious roast, or thrown in a blender to make a smoothie.
Our baby watercress has a delicious peppery punch to it without any bitterness. Perfect as the base for a mixed salad or as a side for meat or fish.
Our Thai Basil is both sweet and spicy with a slight hint of licorice which is very different to the typical sweet basil. So, if you are looking to spice up an Asian dish, try adding some Thai basil leaves. Why not try making a bowl of traditional Vietnamese soup, phở and serving with a bowl of Thai basil leaves for an aniseed taste? We promise you won’t be disappointed!
Our Holy Basil boasts a distinct peppery taste which makes it perfect when you want to ramp the heat up in any soup or stir-fry. Holy Basil is not only known as a great staple herb in the kitchen but also serves as a healing plant to counteract the stresses of life.
We like to refer to our Nufar Basil as Big Leaf Basil due to its characteristic massive leaves. This type of basil is a variety of Sweet Basil and besides being sweet also has a peppery yet minty flavour. Nufar Basil is a must-have in any kitchen due to its great flavour and versatility. We absolutely adore the pesto that we get from using Nufar Basil.
