    Default Mizuno

    Okay, I'm Web tv, so if anything comes across as 'hinky', please let me
    know, gently. I have lurked for a very long time. Yesterday at our
    Memphis "Farmer's Market' in my part of town, I bought some "mizuno'.
    It's has a crisp, peppery texture and is fun to eat raw. Any ideas out
    there or do I just treat it as any other Asian green?

    I've always known it as "mizuna."

    I only use it in salads, myself, just for the bite, but it is also
    used in some soups.

    It's easy to grow, too. I have some out in the kitchen garden.

    Mizuna gives me pause as well. Like arugula, it's somewhere between a salad
    green and an herb. The most obvious use is as a salad green, but you can
    also use it in place of the lettuce in a BLT or as the green component of a
    pesto. It makes a nice garnish for tortilla soup and goes well in tacos. You
    can make a sushi roll with sushi rice, mizuna, cream cheese, cucumber, and
    seafood (shrimp or smoked salmon in particular). It's a pretty good
    substitute for watercress, so if you have recipes which use watercress, look
    them over and consider whether mizuna would work.

    Hey, good to see you come out of the woodwork!

    Nothing looks hinky to me.

    I've always bought it as "mizuna", and only ever eaten it raw, with a
    sprinkle of various nice vinegars, if I'm being virtuous, or as a means
    to scoop up obscenely rich creamy things if I'm not. Worst case
    scenario, it's still healthier than using deep-fried carbs to accomplish
    the latter.

    I've never heard of the stuff, so I'll just stick with a warm welcome.

    My main problem with that is ... I hate it when men are prettier than

    Well, yeah, I hate that too.

    But most guys would have to wear eyeliner to beat me and unless we have
    an '80s revival, I'm safe.

    (That one creepy dude from "Lost" being the obvious exception)

    Heck, I'm still trying to figure out if I even *have* a problem
    with it. If I was innocent I'd rather meet that in a dark alley
    than myself. Unless I had tit's that is.

    has bizarre spacing and punctuation.

    Interesting that you post I DON'T KNOW to most every question/thread. It
    could be easily assumed that you DON'T KNOW if you DON'T show up in the
    thread. You should start a Pop Tart thread.

    Thanks for asking the question. Seriously.

    Here is a green thing unfamiliar to me, and now that
    I'm curious, I find it's also called spider mustard.

    ONe of our faves is a bitter herb salad, typically
    Belgian Endive, Radicchio, arugula, and so on.
    SWMBO swears she ate something like this in
    Germany a while back, but she speaks no German
    and their name for it was incomprehensible to us.

    She *did* say it was somewhat peppery and bitter,
    with dentate leaves like dandeliion. It was served
    wilted.

    There is an Asian market that we frequent now and
    again. Next time I'm there, I'll be looking for this.

    Thanks again for raising the subject.

    Alex
