Spiced Plantain Seed Mix

I love the flavour of plantain seeds (Plantago spp). They have a mild, nutty taste.

Plantain seed is also pretty high in calcium. This recipe makes a superb snack.

Plantain Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 handful of plantain seeds (either greater or ribwort)
  • 3 handfuls of pumpkin seeds
  • 3 handfuls of sesame seeds
  • Good splash of tamari / soy sauce

Plantain Recipe 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
