    Interesting combinations of flavour and texture here. I note the broccoli sprouts which I've not come across before ('sprouts', as in micro-leaves). Do you buy them ready made?

    I really like the sounds of this dish.

    The supermarket grocers offer quite a wide variety of sprouts these days. It used to be just clover and alfalfa sprouts, but now you can get broccoli and radish sprouts, among others. They come prepackaged in plastic containers, leafy side up, root side down, like a small section of turf with the soil washed clean away.

    I tend to like sprouts on sandwiches, but throwing them into a meal item works too.

    It's the first time I have tried Radicchio. It has an interesting flavor and unlike cabbage, falls apart when cooked in a meal like this one. This was quite flavorful and with as I mentioned, a goodly texture. I found some pine nuts to add in since sesame seeds are so small.

    I love it but haven't ever used it cooked - usually in a salad. The bitter taste is lovely and pairs well with orange.

    Since it's not part of the recipe, I assume you can buy it this way? I've only ever seen tofu in grayish cubes. Then again, it could very well be at the local Asian market, and I just never looked for it.

    This looks like a nice blend of Italian (balsamic vinegar, olive oil, pine nuts, and tomato) and Asian (the other ingredients) flavors.
