I loooove sprouts and I usually buy one of those big assortment containers and then lightly saute them in a bit of oil and soy sauce. They are really flavorful!

I like Brussels sprouts but I HATE beansprouts- they certainly do have a taste. A horrible, horrible taste. Evil beansprouts.

I like cress, for the record.

I LOVE sprouts so much. And judging by Desdemona and Chiorqueer's posts I'm going to make a scientific discovery here and say that there must obviously be a link between hirsutism and the enjoyment of sprouts.

Cress are sprouts but sprouts are not necessarily cress. They're like squares and rectangles. And when your husband left England no-one had ever seen any kind of sprout that wasn't cress, with the exception of maybe beansprouts, which I don't count as sprouts in the US type of sprouts. So I do think there's a bit of a UK centric thing here which means you can forgive him. And I've looked at the word sprout so many times that I don't know what it is now.

Wait, people call watercress Cress?

Sprouts range from delicious to deadly boring, in this order: bean sprouts, lentil sprouts, garlic sprouts, peanut sprouts, onion sprouts, broccoli sprouts, sunflower sprouts, pea shoots, mung bean sprouts, alfalfa sprouts. The rest do not need mentioning in my world. Alfalfa sprouts are gross because they might look fresh when you put them in your sandwich but roughly 2 minutes later they've gone bad, and while mung bean sprouts play a huge important role in Vietnamese cuisine, the grocery store ones are hideous.

No, watercress is watercress. Cress is mustard cress. Fundamental part of egg and cress sandwiches which I am going to make a vegan version of this weekend because I have just remembered how much I adored them.

You guys are really making me crave anything fresh and green. We can't buy sprouts here anymore, I've been considering growing my own, but I'm not sure I even have time for that.

No, I thought they were different and Wikipedia seems to back this up.

This is cress:

Tiny and can grow on damp tissue paper. Usually eaten in sandwiches.

This is watercress:

Slightly bigger leaves and needs more wet to grow. I think of watercress as being eaten in soup.

My favorite used to be radish sprouts, but I haven't seen them in forever.

I assumed we were talking about alfalfa sprouts because of the pubic hair comparison. If your pubes look like bean sprouts you should probably see a doctor or an aesthetician.

Mmmmm bean sprouts.

Oh sorry! I was only kidding. All pubic hair is good pubic hair and whatever you choose to do with yours is no one's business.

I also hate sprouts, but really that just means alfalfa sprouts. Bean sprouts are delicious and crunchy. And I like the kinds of things sold as microgreens, which are probably just fancy sprouts.

But, for the love of God, alfalfa sprouts do not belong on Mexican food.

I grow pounds of them. Trust me, you have time because it takes so little time to do. I suppose if you travel and won't be home to harvest them then you don't have time but otherwise all it takes is a jar and seeds and you can have little gardens all over your kitchen.

Huge, huge money saver to. The cost differential between buying sprouts and growing them is huge.

I am weirdly turned on by this.

My peeve for the day: my company has a luxury suite at a sports center, and I have a whole bunch of leftover tickets to a bull-riding event this weekend. I put an email out to all staff that I was giving them away, and I am disappointing by the level of excitement about this event. Stupid animal events are the WORST part of my job (but I love my job mostly except for this stuff)

Also, and this is not vegan-specific but management is asking me to give tickets to their employees, even though I do a lottery system to be 100% fair. Jesbus. I don't event give MYSELF tickets to events I want to go to. I put myself in the drawing like everyone else. And I am the events person!

I grow cress in my garden rather than sprouting them - the "thickly sown rows" referenced below. I got about 8 weeks of cut & come again harvest from these two varieties. And I would consider anything with "...cress" in the name to be a type of cress, so Upland cress and Watercress too! They're all peppery members of the same family, Brassicaceae.

http://www.wildgardenseed.com/index.php ... 5f8ee7a3b4
Cress: Garden
Lepidium sativum
Fast growing peppery salad green, sprouts in 24 hrs. Whole baby plants for micro greens, or for repeated cuttings of thickly sown rows.

I keep wanting to order from sprout people to grow for the birds, but the shipping is enormous so I never order. Sprouts are supposed to be excellent for birdies. Of course, our lot probably wouldn't eat anyway, though Molly might.

The macaw is a junk food fiend. It's awful. And the tiel is a carb fiend. Molly is the only vegan, something she finds unfair.

All this talk about sprouts. . .I used to always order sprouts on my (non-veg) Jimmy John's. . . but they don't seem to offer it anymore, according to their website. Hmm. I guess I was in the minority. I think I'd enjoy sprouts in a sandwich with a chewy protein like baked tofu or seitan. Hummus + sprouts just sounds like too much.

Microgreens are what happens a week after the sprouts sprout.

I just (tonight even) planted lentils to sprout with a bunch of little kids and they're like, whoa. Then we made parsley pesto and they were again, like, whoa. I really hope their lentils sprout. I told them to wait 2-5 days for the sprouts and then if they wait another week or so they'll have microgreens, and then if they wait longer either the thing will die or something awesome will happen, but they'll have to experiment and tell me.

Not sure if this fits under the header of sprouts (maybe microgreens?), but in our garden this summer my partner and I horribly overplanted rutabaga and had to thin down from hundreds of sprouts to tens. No sense discarding them, so we decided to eat them all (added to a stir fry). It was one of our better decisions.
