Sprouted Lentil "Rye" Crisps

I truly adore these light, crisp crackers with a nut or seed pate or humus. Growing up Jewish in "Joisey," I was raised on, and loved a really good Jewish Rye. The ground fennel seeds in this recipe work their magic, providing a tone so very reminiscent of this bread....and now...no gluten or processed junk to worry about.

Lentils and buckwheat are easy to sprout in a Mason jar, using sprouting lids. Click HERE for directions on sprouting buckwheat. Lentils take a bit longer, but don't need to be dehydrated.

Sprouting - Lentils, Garbanzos and Mung Beans - Oh My!


Beans, beans, beans. We've got lentils, garbanzo beans and mung beans  and it's time to do some sprouting. There are many health benefits to eating sprouts and I've read that sprouting increases enzymes up to 600%. I don't know that's true, but I do know they feel good and my body tells me what's good and what's not. It says, "Sprouts are GOOD!!!"

Zippy Red Lentil Burgers

These are obviously not raw, but if you are transitioning to a plant based diet, and crave a bit of cooked food on a cold, Winter evening, these are super yummy and easy to prepare. Dairy free Yogurt Sauce on the side. Yummmmy! You can make raw fermented yogurt from almonds...recipe posted elsewhere on this blog. But here is a quick mock yogurt.

Soothing Red Lentil Soup

Revisiting one of my all time favorite cooked soups. It's a creamy and soothing comfort food, for sure. Yumm. I need to make up a batch of this right now. I found this great recipe here and changed it up a bit.

Cheese Burger?

It's so much fun converting leftovers into something new and yummy. I spread some almond cheese sauce from our nacho feast last night onto a non-stick sheet and dehydrated a few hours. I wanted it to be like sliced American cheese, but I think it needed a little more time in the dehydrator. It came out more like a thick cheese spread, and was delicious.

Topping Zippy Red Lentil Burgers with this creamy cheddar cheeze, guacamole, re-fried beans, red onions and tomato, served open-faced on a piece of Almond Bread  I pulled out of the freezer. What a great meal. I craved something warm tonight and the burgers went great with all of the raw fixins!

French Lentil Chili

W wanted something warm tonight, so I came up with a French Lentil Chili. Lentils are low in fat and high in protein and fiber. The good news is, they cook quickly. Lentils have a mild and earthy flavor, and are best cooked with strong flavorings.  French green lentils are sort of peppery and hold their shape rather well. They don't get mushy like most other lentils.

Always rinse lentils and pick out stones and other debris. There's no need to soak them. Store lentils  in a cool, dry place.
