Have you seen those packages of sprouted beans and lentils at Whole Foods and wondered what in the hell people did with them other than put them on salads? Well, apparently you can make a tasty, raw three bean salad out of them.
Recently I was gifted a package of them and Ben’s mom (raw food extraordinaire) told me you could make a three bean salad out of them! Yum! It actually turned out really well.
1 package Sprouted beans and lentils (can’t remember the brand…)
1 part Apple cider vinegar
1 part Raw agave
1/2 C Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 Onion, chopped
1 Tbs Parsely
1 Tbs Rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
Rinse the beans and lentils well (5-10 minutes). This is very important because apparently if you don’t rinse them they can make you sick! Though I’m not sure why… that’s just what Merilynn said.
Mix all of the above ingredients together. Add equal parts apple cider vinegar and agave until you have enough liquid to cover the beans.
Let marinate in the fridge overnight to soften the beans. You don’t have to marinate it, but the beans will be much crunchier and starchier if you don’t.
