    Yes, they taste like tofu; wet cardboard (with an even worse texture).
    Umm, Brussels sprouts are *not* meat and potatoes. ;-)

    Ya, it's cool, you'll run around the house looking at all the lights a
    couple times and then it will set on a shelf until someone mentions
    spectroscopes, then you'll pull it out again just for kicks. :)

    Tofu is like cauliflower - only useful for soaking up a good sauce.

    Pretty good in miso soup, better in marbudofu (Chinese version of
    chilli-con-carne) and best as kitsune udon noodles (literally fox -
    actually it is deep fried to the colour of a fox's coat). YMMV

    Inauthentic recipes but gives some ideas.

    Try the shovelware CD at glancing incidence too. Best instructions these
    days on Maurice Gavins page at top right corner:

    http://home.freeuk.com/m.gavin/solaspec.htm

    It is ideal as an easy incredibly cheap science demo to show people how
    "white" light is not all that it seems to be. eg CFL vs incandescent

    This dim sum dish is good too:

    And sour and hot soup:

    Then you must have never tasted the good ones, like these:

    http://www.chefkoch.de/rezepte/828591187510657/Rehmedaillons-mit-Pfifferlingen.html

    Right after I met a girlfriend who is now my wife we had a stop-over at
    an airport and headed for the duty-free shops. She bought a package with
    a miniscule amount of dried mushrooms for a whopping $20 or so. I
    thought "Whoa, that woman is a spender, she'd going to be high
    maintenance!". Until she cooked a wonderful meal with them ...


    Well, I eat them as side vegetables, next to whar the taters are ;-)
     
  7. Guest

    You're certainly right about that! I don't often do the impossible. ;-)
    SWMBO knows better. I'd fire her. ;-) She loves 'shrooms, but she knows
    enough to keep them off my plate.
    Green beans (only fresh, whole), peas, maybe even some limas, but not a chance
    on Brocolli or Brussels sprouts. The rest of the hot greens can go to the
    same place.

    That's neat, too. The interesting thing about the spectroscope Mike linked is
    that it's calibrated. It'll actually be of some use at work.

    Tofu is no substitute for a decent mushroom; then again most people have
    never tasted a decent mushroom. Try a fresh baby bella mushroom some day.
     
  10. Guest

    No thanks. I'll just eat my wet cardboard.

    Grrr.
    Idiot. She IS smarter than you. Good 'shrooms are delicious and
    nutritious. Junk 'shrooms are very like tofu. I pays to learn the
    difference.
    It is strange, i have discovered since childhood that i love broccoli and
    cauliflower RAW. Hated b & c as a child. Loved pumpkin pie, don't care
    for it now; disliked mince meat pie, like it now; always liked green
    beans; never liked brussel sprouts (they are not sprouts either). Tastes
    do change, even well into adulthood (in my 40's and later). I was in my
    30s when i learned to appreciate 'hot', much later i am a minor dragon ( i
    can take / even like rather HOT food (over 10,000 Scoville),, hell i make
    stuff over 30,000 Scoville. I would have spat it out and ran crying to
    the restroom as a teen. Taste can and often does change over time.

    I make flavorful chili-garlic sauce, want some? It freezes and ships
    reasonably. Regular red about 30,000 Scoville, Solar Flare brand (tm)
    over 100,000 Scoville. For quick comparison Jalapeno peppers run 2000 to
    5000 Scoville. Habenjeros run about 80,000 to 300,000 they are the base
    of Solar Flare.

    Prejudiced twit.

    How in the hell do you get that? Caulifower (before cooking all the life
    out of it) is extremely flavorful, tofu never is flavorful. It is no
    longer tofu if you add flavor. Cauliflower is no longer cauliflower if
    you cook the flavor out of it. Broccoli as well. Then again maybe you
    don't like flavorful natural foods.

    Wrong! ...but I wouldn't expect you to know that.
    There are a lot of things I like raw that I don't like cooked. Carrots and
    celery (though they're OK in a stew) are two that immediately come to mind.
    None of that. I can't stand the smell of pumpkin pie.
    Sure. I eat lots of things that I wouldn't as a kid. I didn't even eat pizza
    until I was an adult. And gyros, yum! No Mexican, either.
    I like hot, as a flavor, but I'm not into pain. No thanks. I like my wife's
    chili. Its heat grows on you, like chili pepper should.

    Prejudiced against things that taste somewhere between wet cardboard and shit,
    you bet!

    Well i normally make regular red from a Fresno pepper cultivars at about
    30,000 Scoville. I can make Green (Jalepeno) or Solar Flare (tm). I will
    pm for shipping address. Recipe available as well. Which one(s) might
    you be interested in? I prefer to give freely of occasional sample size
    amounts, if i end up shipping lots of samples i would want come form of
    compensation. Significant batches can be negotiated. Volume / regular
    production in not available.
