Sprouting grains and soaking seeds and nuts...
This morning, I drained the water from the jars that my raw pumpkin seeds, raw sunflower seeds, and raw almonds had been soaking in overnight. I used them to make a hummus-like spread for bread and crackers. (The sprouting grains are for a different recipe.) Just look at this nutritious goodness...
1 cup hulled raw (unroasted) sunflower seeds
1 cup raw (unroasted) pumpkin seeds
1 cup raw (unroasted) almonds
1 garlic clove, chopped
½ red sweet pepper, chopped (I used a cuke because it’s what I had.)
¼ cup minced fresh parsley (I used 4 tsp dried.)
½ red onion, chopped
Soak seeds and almonds overnight then drain and rinse. In a food processor with an S blade, a Green Power using the blank and with the least amount of tension, or a Champion Juicer (what I have) with the blank in place, put the seeds, almonds, carrot, and garlic through. Stir in the sweet pepper, parsley, and onion. After spreading on bread or crackers, season with salt and pepper to taste.
