Mushrooms + Microgreens + MasterChef Singapore Finalist = Mouthwatering Magic

This video was filmed before the outbreak of COVID-19 locally.

In this episode of "Surprise Supplies", Sidney Chua from Citizen Farm - the urban farm that prides itself in offering sustainably grown and pesticide-free produce, and creating jobs for the socially disadvantaged - turns up with a Citizen Box filled with pretty surprises in the most beautiful shades of pink and purple that Nature has to offer. 

Watch how Gen turns it into a veritable "edible Garden City".

A subscription with the Citizen Box comes with two Citizen Farm cooler bags worth $15 each.Photo:

  • native edible plants (such as roselle, sayur manis, moringa, and Okinawan spinach)
  • edible flowers and herbs (everything from Blue Pea flowers and Kaffir lime to lemon grass and laksa leaves)
