My husband and I are trying to eat healthier and we are trying to do things more naturally to move away from processed foods. Those desires made the prospect of sprouted wheat very appealing. Well, appealing to me anyway. To be honest, I’ve sort of foisted my interest in healthy eating on my dear ol’ hubby, and he’s taking it in stride (very graciously, I might add!). Anyway, once I’d figured out that it was super easy to sprout my own wheat berries, I decided to try out an easy recipe that seemed appropriate for this kind of grain (spelt, to be exact).
I’m using the term “recipe” loosely here. There are no measurements and it’s the type of thing anyone could come up with on their own. I just like food that tastes good – using raw ingredients was a bonus!
So here is my “recipe” for Fresh Herb Sprouted Salad (quantities, ingredients, and measurements to taste)…
In a bowl, combine:
Sprouted Spelt Berries
Garden or Fresh Sweet Basil, Garden or Fresh Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley, and Homemade or Fresh Mozzarella
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Kosher Salt, and Pepper
And that’s it! Stir it up and enjoy! It’s a super hearty salad, so make sure you use enough cheese and herbs to offset the density of the sprouted spelt.
Until next time, my friends!
