Microgreen Toast

My Garden Life
March 4, 2020
Servings: 8 open-faced sandwiches or 16-20 appetizer rounds


8 bread slices, (a rustic multigrain works best), toasted
A baguette sliced into up to 20 rounds, brushed with olive oil, and toasted under the broiler until just golden
For the cream cheese spread:
1 package of cream cheese, softened
Juice of 1/2 lemon
3 green onions, white and green parts, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
For the topping:
1 1/2 cups microgreens (any type or a mix)
Suggested additional toppings:
Hard boiled eggs, sliced
Avocado, sliced
Cherry tomatoes, halved
Radish, thinly sliced
Fresh peas, raw
Cucumber, sliced thin


Make the spread: Combine the cream cheese, lemon juice, green onion and Worchester sauce in a mixing bowl and stir well with a fork. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Spread the cream cheese mixture on the toast slices or rounds. At this point you can top with microgreens and you will already have a delicious and attractive dish.
For a more nuanced taste experience, before adding the microgreens, layer any of the suggested additional toppings or a combination then finish with microgreens.
If serving for lunch, place two toasts next to a green salad also topped with microgreens. If using as hors d’oeuvres, use any extra microgreens to garnish the serving platter.


  • If you’re starting seeds for spring plantings, use the thinnings from your lettuce, leek, broccoli, kale, spinach, pea, herb and radish starts as microgreens.
  • Hummus can also work in place of the cream cheese spread to make a vegan version of this dish.
  • Your imagination’s the limit in coming up with tasty items to put between the cream cheese spread and the microgreens. Even proteins like smoked salmon or thinly sliced roast beef will work.
Microgreen rounds make a fantastic buffet item. Arrange them on a tray next to these stuffed cherry tomatoes for an elegant vegetarian appetizer platter.
