I first had this delicious food at Lifespring, a unique place to eat on Highway 51 south of Minocqua, Wisconsin (in the geodesic dome across from Blue Lake Road). The owner, Steven Black, graciously shared his recipe with me. I'll be back so I can try everything he has on his menu of healthy foods.
I think you'll enjoy the reading the recipe as much as eating the final dish.
Start with a ceramic (sturdy) bowl
The recipe does not need these additions for taste but just to kick it up a notch from ultra-healthy to ultra-ultra-healthy.
This makes one serving as a main dish. A couple of people could easily share it as a side dish or appetizer. I served this for myself with a very large green salad and a good beer for a delicious and easy Friday night supper.
I soaked both lentils and mung beans in separate bowls overnight. I just left these bowls on the counter. In the morning I drained them both very well.
I only had one screen to use for sprouting with a canning jar (cheesecloth could also be used) so I tried a different technique for the mung beans, which worked just fine!
The recipe is also great just with sprouted lentils.
Steven has inspired me to go back to sprouting. Years ago sprouted sunflower seeds were my absolutely favorite food. It's time to try them again!
Here is a web site that has lots of fascinating information about growing and cooking with sprouts: http://www.sproutpeople.com
In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.
I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes". I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book. I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.
If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me. If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe. If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
