Fenugreek makes great sprouts, very earthy taste, easy and fast to grow. Maybe 3 days. The only downside is that they don't shuck the seed casing very well and those (bit slimy) are hard to wash out.
Tempeh was 1/4 each soy, chick peas, adzuki beans and green split peas. Chick peas are probably the dominant flavour note.
Nasturtium leaves are a bit peppery, taste is something like cress if you've ever had that. Nature even made them a convenient shape for popping into a bread roll :-)
I think you're right about linseed = flaxseed. Historical aside: historian Geoffrey Blainey is of the opinion that the British settled Australia because they were primarily looking for a suitable place to grow flax, a prime industrial fibre of the times (1700s). He's spectacularly wrong but it's a fun theory.

Wow, I have much to learn about things you can eat.

Very simple yet yummy lunch today: baby spinach, sweet potato, crushed pinapple, onion, and dried tart cherries with balsamic vinegrette.

What an extraordinary lunch BILBY4! I never thought to sprout fenugreek. I will. I have much to learn and try with sprouting. I have eaten nasturtium flowers but not the leaves. This, too, I will try. And mixed bean tempeh. I have yet to make that. I have still only used soy, black beans, and peanuts for tempeh thus far. And, a linseed roll. What is that? I use the oil for painting and making varnish. Ahh, is that another word for flaxseed? Hmmm....

I had leftover tofu quiche, based on a happy heribovre recipe. Instead of the "greens" it called for I used zucchini, onion, and red bell peppers. emoticon

This recipe has a lot of potential and was super easy!

The brownies I made by replacing half the vegan butter w/ unsweetened applesauce and used half wheat flour. Can't wait till they are ready!

Anyone else having a delicious plant strong lunch today? Please share!
