I have a pot of brahmi in my yard. I bought the small creature a while back, and it lived as an indoor house plant for several months. It did nothing for a while. It didn’t die but it never thrived. After some fishies died, I used the fishtank to store the brahmi, having read that it enjoyed humid, swampy environments. Soon, the damn thing was bursting at the seams. The fish tank was a good idea for both creating an idea environment, as well as limiting the creeper roots that grow by the millions! One little thing about brahmi, though, is that it tastes horribly bitter. The flowers are cute, but it’s a trap to lure you into thinking the leaves will be nice (hint: you’re wrong!)
Anyway, I saw this recipe on viedelavegan and we made it immediately. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of bitterness. As a meal idea, pesto and pasta is always awesome. I served with peas, nutritional yeast and sun-dried tomatoes. Yum!
