SPROUTED LENTIL CUCUMBER CURRY SALAD

IMG_0685

Based on this recipe from VeganChef:

2 cups sprouted lentils
2/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup whole soaked flaxseed
1 cucumber, chopped
1 stalk scallions, chopped
1 whole tomato, chopped
2 Tb cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
2 TB fresh squeeze lemon juice
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp red curry powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp mustard powder

Just toss everything and serve. It’s really tasty and not too spicy. You can add more pepper flakes if you like it a little hotter, like me.

Recipes: Energy Soups – boost up your energy levels

Sprouts are an excellent source of vitamin C and also contain many good B vitamins. And you probably won’t find a less expensive way to get these vitamins than from low calorie sprouts. Green leafy sprouts are also a good source of vitamin A. Sprouts are a good source of fiber, protein, and contain enzymes that aid digestion. In addition, sprouting destroys the seed’s natural preservative enzymes that inhibit digestion (see Taarak’s post for a more entertaining explanation of this phenomenon).

There are so many ways to enjoy your raw sprouts. One of the easiest way is to blend a handful of sprouts into whatever you are juicing.

Here’s a “soup” that will give you lots of energy throughout the day. All you need is a blender.

Energy Soup – Southwest Style

1 cup sunflower sprouts (put in bottom of blender).
Add juice of 1 lemon.
Stuff blender with buckwheat and sunflower greens until full.
Fill blender 3/4 full of filtered or spring water.
Add flax sprouts or any other sprout on hand.

Blend until smooth.

Add avocado and blend 30 seconds more.
Serve in soup bowls.

As my kids would say, Easy-Peasy-Lemon-Squeezy 🙂
