Recently, I ordered in a Local Spaghetti bolognese. They were overcooked: as a Gift, it was not an Italian Restaurant. Much more annoyed by the tufts of Watercress to the Sauce, I had to First put away.
The green stuff was, in this court, completely out of place. Not only Watercress, other sprouts and seedlings in green and violet colors with strange names, such as Alfalfa or mung beans to populate currently the plate. Whether as a garnish the tartare, on the cured meat platter, in Sandwiches, in burgers or in a salad: It seems that a new wave of broke out. The last I remember, ended eight years ago in the North of Germany with a food scandal. At the time, has probably triggered a vegetable Sprouts are the intestinal epidemic Ehec, which led to the market collapse completely.
from Each according to his taste
Long ago, the Wind has turned again: Yourself plants is to pull back; also, the vegetarian and vegan cuisine is becoming more and more popular. So the seedlings, which can be by yourself to fit perfectly with the Zeitgeist. Me from can rich followers of the raw food at home with this Oh-so-healthy, and fiber to "Super -" and "vital food" stuff as you want.
I don't have to eat it. If the green herb but it is of the essence in the Restaurant up, I so love my trouble. At least I can not shake off the impression that seedlings are a cheap solution to give a court to the Quick something Green and Healthy. In other words: The more shoots, the less the imagination of the chef. I don't know how much I salads of such green stuff pile had to free.
At the end of the ton
Not infrequently, only one tomato and two, three lettuce leaves remained, then left. We are honest: the sprouts are unnecessary filler material. It also happens that these are used as "side dishes" for meat dishes. Is it too much, a pretty garnish of fresh salad or vegetables to offer?
I'm also not convinced that the seedlings a dish a taste lift in new spheres. Often too intense and spicy, you are in the rarest of cases. Fresh, chopped herbs fit is often better. Better even than the edible flowers that are made since this spring, similar to the rungs on more and more plates on Display. You look pretty and do well on food blogs and on Instagram. Really better the soup will be in order also. How I long for the good old Peterli! Its taste is unbeatable, and the herb supports the digestive.
