The Stack Recipe


The Greens

These are all microgreens, not their full vegetable counterparts.

  • Sunflower microgreens
  • Pak choi or broccoli microgreens
  • Radish microgreens
  • Kale microgreens
  • Coriander microgreens
  • Beetroot microgreens

The Balsamic Dressing

  • 6 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 2TBSP balsamic vinegar

The Additions (Optional)

  • Protein: Chicken, salmon, or tuna
  • Cheese feta, crumbled cheddar, or grated parmesan
  • Vegetables: tomato and pickles


  1. Start off by harvesting all your microgreens from their growth punnets. Make sure you’re cutting them far enough away from the soil or rough that you’re not including the seed, then wash them thoroughly.
  2. Grab all your microgreens and put them in a bowl, fluffing them together to create a delicious multi-coloured mix of nutritious greens. These will form the base of the stack.
  3. Prepare your protein in any way you prefer. I love going for light preparation on these aspects of a stack because they allow the true flavours of the stack to shine through. For example, try baking your chicken in some oil, salt, pepper, and Italian herbs for the perfect combination.
  4. Next up, mix your dressing. Balsamic dressing is super easy to make, just combine the oil and vinegar and stir.
  5. Take a large handful of greens and put them on your serving plate, leaving some aside for the final presentation.
  6. Dress these greens with your prepared dressing. Careful not to drench them! You want the flavour of the greens to shine through the acidity and sweetness of the dressing.
  7. Place any additional ingredients you’ve chosen on top of the stack, including your protein, cheese, and vegetables.
  8. Finally, crown this delicious meal with the microgreens you kept aside.

Marvel at the beauty of this ultra-nutritious meal, pick up your knife and fork, and tuck in
