Our recipe cards are here!

If you often browse the salad aisle of your local Morrison’s, Asda or Lidl you may soon notice a little addition to our salad cress punnets.

That’s right, we have launched our recipe cards! Something we have been working on for quite a while, quietly behind the scenes.

As you will know, one of our main missions at B Sow Healthy is to put salad items such as salad cress back on the menu, to regain its rightful title as a valued and vibrant little seedling while shouting from the rooftops about its fantastic health benefits. This is where our recipe cards come in, to help inspire you to use salad cress in your favourite dishes in new ways.

From today you may see our Potato Salad with Salad Cress recipe card out on the shelves, soon to be followed by our Egg Mayonnaise Bagel with Salad Cress later this month. As we move through the year, we will be profiling lots of other exciting dishes, helping to encourage you to use salad cress in every day, simple and healthy meals.

Now, taking a quick look at salad cress’ health benefits. Here are a few of its nutritional qualities:

 

  • Vitamin C salad cress is a good source of vitamin C, which is an essential part of our diets as it helps to protect cells and keep them healthy, it maintains healthy skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage.

 

  • Folic Acid – folic acid, another nutrient found in salad cress, helps the body to produce healthy red blood cells, and reduces the risk of central neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in unborn babies.

Salad cress is not only healthy and easy to prepare, it is also very cost effective. We hope our recipe cards inspire you to pick up a punnet and create some lovely dishes for light lunches or healthy main meals.

If you pick up a punnet, or try one of our recipes, don’t forget to share a photo on Instagram by tagging @b_sowhealthy.
