I’m not a big sprouts guy, either. At least, I wasn’t until I started going to the local Farmers’ Market back in mid-2018. One of the growers specializes in them, and lets you try before you buy.
I had already discovered onion sprouts as my sole enjoyed micro green when my supply disappeared from store shelves, so when I found out HE had them, I was happy. Then he let me try others.
At this point, I’ve added garlic and radish sprouts to my regular purchases from him, along with the onions. Sometimes broccoli or sunflower sprouts.
The onion, garlic, and broccoli sprouts all taste like milder versions of the mature plants. The radish sprouts do too, but they taste equally of a mild black pepper type flavor as well. There’s also a hint of sweetness. So now, radish sprouts are my #1 micro green.
Hot link, Swiss & sautéed garlicky spinach sandwich:
Inspired by sandwiches from a variety of cultures that incorporate some kind of cooked greens. I did this with leftovers.
The onion roll is toasted & smeared with mayo. The hot link was warmed & split to lay securely on the roll. The partially warmed sautéed spinach was topped by the Swiss and then given 30 more seconds in the microwave to get a little melt. Then that was carefully laid on top of the sausage.
The results were VERY tasty. Would definitely do again. But I made ONE error.
Instead of cutting the sandwich in half ALONG THE LENGTH of the sausage, I cut ACROSS the sausage. Rookie mistake. The result: when I took the second bite, all of the ingredients vacated the sandwich in all directions with stunning alacrity, leaving me with a mayo and roll sandwich.
And speaking of sandwiches...Weinberger’s Deli strikes again! This is the Senator- one of their “off-menu” creations. As a result, I don’t know precisely what’s on it. There’s a couple of different meats, sautéed mushrooms, melted cheese and greens of some kind. All in all, a messy masterpiece!
There’s a Korean-American fusion place near me that has one of those on the menu. I haven’t tried one, but one of my cousins always gets it when we go, and since he makes it disappear so quickly, they must be good.
