Seaworthy Lass, you are the best. I liked the previous title too, but this one is more accurate. I look forward to contributing some recipes once I have more experience using the galley underway.

Some fresh ideas would be brilliant .

PS The previous title should have been changed ages ago - the 'lovers' reference was just a shameless attempt to initially entice a bit more interest in the thread .

LOL, good one .

It is recipes, not ratings we want though. Let's see if a wholesome, non scary title can coax members to share a few favourites and spread the pleasure around .

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

We just ate these guys for dinner tonight. I grew mung beans into bean sprouts, started about 6 days ago and made a chinese chop suey (or what my mom called it in Canada). Stir fry: Bean sprouts, mushrooms, green onions, ginger, garlic, then make a sauce w/sesame oil oyster and soy sauce and water. Over jasmine rice. It was so good.

Cherise, that sounds delicious. I love that combo of flavours.

Jedi posted a thread a while back on how to grow thick sprouts the Chinese way (in the dark with a weight):
Ultimate Bean Sprouting Guide

NornaBiron uses this method now and she swears by it.

PS Your recipe has just been added it to the index in post #1.

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Thanks. I will check that out, thank you.
My next method will be repurposing a used juice/milk carton (like the rice milk kind). I was told darkness and dampness were the keys. But weight makes sense.

Sprouts are fantastic on board, providing a fresh crunchy "vegetable" when you are out of reach of shops, but I have only sprouted mung beans using the same technique as for alfalfa (see post #605). The fat ones sound appealing .

You have inspired me to finally try and translate Jedi's 3 blogs describing the "fat bean sprout" technique. It was a slow process on an iPad, as whole pages cannot be translated. I will send Jedi a PM and ask him to check my précis.

Jedi's 18 photos showing the entire process can be seen here:
https://sv-jedi.smugmug.com/GalleyRe...auge/i-H8nwZNF

So here goes:

FAT FRESH BEAN SPROUTS

Requirements:
► Mung beans
► Filtered water
► 3 squat plastic containers around 750ml, that stack snuggly together (using a hot soldering iron pierce the base of one of these with lots of drainage holes that are a bit smaller than mung bean sized creating what will be a "colander")
► Lid from one of these containers

The beans need to be tended every 12 hours, so it is best starting in the morning or early evening. Total time taken is 60 hours. Differences in climate and the beans themselves may vary the time taken.

Step 1:
Sprinkle a layer of beans in one of the two bowls without holes, making sure that it is only a single layer of beans, with no beans on top of each other (don't overcrowd them as they will suffocate and the whole harvest will fail). It doesn't seem like much, but it will provide a large bowl of sprouts.
Pour about a third of a container of water on the beans, put on the lid and leave 12 hours.

Step 2:
12 hours later the beans will be about tripled in volume and the green skins cracked open. Working over the galley sink, tip the beans and water into the tray with the holes ie the "colander". Rinse the beans under the tap and shake to remove excess water.
Stack this "colander" with beans on top of one of the other trays (this will capture any excess water). Place the third tray (empty) on top of the beans, cover with the lid and leave 12 hours.

Step 3:
12 hours later short white sprouts will be starting to appear. Rinse both the beans and the drip tray, stack the trays as before and leave another 12 hours.

Step 4:
12 hours later the white sprouts will be longer. Rinse the beans and tray as before, but when stacking the trays, half fill the top one with water before putting on the lid and leave the stack somewhere dark for 12 hours. The beans need to push the water up to grow, creating fatter shoots. The darkness fools the beans into thinking they are underground so they will grow straight, as if to the sun.

Step 5:
12 hours later the growth will have been substantial. Rinse the bean and drip tray again, but this time completely fill the top tray with water when re-stacking. Place in the dark again for another 12 hours.

Step 6:
12 hours later the beans will have completely pushed up the tray with water! Looking from the side you will see straight thick white shoots. There will be roots emerging through the "colander" holes.
Tip the sprouts into a large bowl and tip the water from the top tray into it. Gently shake out the sprouts, then lift them out, leaving excess green skins and any underdeveloped sprouts (discard all these).
Dry the sprouts as much as possible using paper towels or a lettuce centrifuge.

If you are not using them immediately, for longevity store the sprouts refrigerated in a container similar to the sprouting stack, but with a perforated lid. This ensure the sprouts are not sitting in moisture and they can "breathe". They should keep for about a week this way.

Jedi, thanks for describing this process .

Wottie, you are such a BAD influence. My finger hovered over the "Buy" button for a while before I guiltily hit it, only to be saved by the fact that they do not ship overseas .

This is pretty much the method I use for sprouts, taken from Jedi's original post several years ago.

I've made a few modifications though! In the summer heat of the Mediterranean the sprouts need rinsing three and sometimes four times a day or they will dry out. The soaking process only needs to be 8 hours too or the beans start to ferment in the heat. I usually find that I need to add a big fat book to the sprouting tier to encourage thick sprouts, the water tray never seems to be quite heavy enough. Once harvested, I keep the sprouts, dried as much as possible, wrapped loosely in kitchen paper in a plastic tub in the fridge. The sprouts grow in a couple of days in the middle of summer so I use them pretty quick and usually have a new tray started as soon as I harvest the last.

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

I think the translation is good We call these bean sprouts "taugé" which is a malaysian word AFAIK.

It is important to understand that the sprouts push the whole container filled with water upwards because they are in the dark and try to grow to above ground. The weight of the container is what makes them thick (strong).

I started doung this method when I read how the Chinese do this: they put the beans in a sort of flat barrel, with a lid on that and a pile of rocks on top of that lid. I turned that into a modern version with the pre-soak and 12-hour rinse periods. The darkness and weight is from the Chinese story
