Pita sandwich

Sprout Love

20120507-233329.jpg

Has anyone else never really checked out the sprout section of the Japanese supermarket? I’ve passed by and noticed the variety but didn’t actually take a look. I think I accidentally bought mustard sprouts (I hate mustardy things) a while back and was too scarred to go back. I had a craving for a tuna sandwich on Sunday and suddenly remembered that alfalfa sprouts exist and had to have them in my tuna sandwich. Good choice as the sandwich made me feel nostalgic. I kid you not. Anyhow, I also picked up some broccoli sprouts to try and discovered that I love them. I added both types of sprouts to my lunch pita pocket today. Yum.

You can sprout your own seeds in a glass jar. This could be fun. Instructions here.

  1. I don’t want to got off the topic of the post, but I can’t seem to find the “email” button.

    I’ve been curious to know if Japan has Masa Harina, the corn flour used to make Mexican corn tortillas.

    I live in Sapporo. Any advice is appreciated.

    1. Hi Christian,

      Thanks for stopping by. I’ll take a look for masa harina. I’m sure it’s available somewhere.

      It looks like my email button has disappeared. I’ll try to have it back up again soon.
