Spiced Greater Plantain Seed Mix

Greater Plantain Recipe

I love the flavour of Greater Plantain seeds (Plantago major). They have a mild, nutty taste. Greater Plantain seed is also pretty high in calcium. This recipe makes a superb snack.


  • 1 handful of Greater Plantain
  • 3 handfuls of Pumpkin seeds
  • 3 handfuls of Sesame seeds
  • Good splash of Tamari / Soy sauce

Suggested Instructions

  1. Put your seed mix into a non-stick frying pan and toast the seeds lightly.
  2. Add a generous dash of Tamari or Soy sauce and coat the seed mix, allowing any excess Tamari / Soy sauce to evaporate.
  3. Turn out into bowls.

Serves: Use a snack
