When you sprout beans you increase the nutritional value of those beans. Allow me to get to my point without boring you…sprouted foods help boost energy, help with prevention of disease, and repair body tissue.
You can easily do this at home with a seed sprouting kit, available at any health food stores (I think) or simply buy bean sprouts at your local food store. I however, am going to start sprouting my own Alfalfa Seeds…. Starting today! If you are as excited as I am with this new journey I’ll happly keep you updated on my progress. But for now, here’s a simple and yummy sprouted bean casserole.
All beans should be sprouted
1 C mung beans
1 C baby lima beans
1 C pinto beans
1 large onion, chopped
1 large red or green pepper, finely chopped
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
3 C chopped leeks
3 T Liquid Aminos
ground pepper to taste
Steam fry onion and garlic. Add leeks, liquid aminos and ground pepper. Simmer for 15 min. Add chopped pepper and simmer for 5 min. Place all beans in a casserole dish and pour onion and leek mixture on top of beans and stir to combine. Bake at 350 FOR 15 min.
