Recipes Using Sprouted Seeds and Beans

I have started to sprout seeds and beans. I am wondering if any of you have cooking recipes, other than for the usual sandwiches and salads. I am wondering also if anyone uses sprouts for baking bread. Many thanks.

Salami and Camembert Seeded Bap

To make this is a really fantastic bap, ensure the baps are fresh and are topped with seeds: sesame, pumpkin, sunflower etc, these will add the extra flavour which will enhance the simple filling.

Serves 2

Ingredients: 2 brown seeded baps cut in half and buttered on the cut side, &frac; Bag 50g (2oz) Alfalfa or alfalfa-leek, 6 - 8 slices of Peppered Salami, 6 - 8 thin slices of Camembert cheese

Method: Place the baps butter side up on a board, divide &frac; of the Alfalfa between the two bap bases, place on a Camembert slice followed by a folded Salami slice, alternate around the bap until all are used, top with a sprinkle of the remaining Alfalfa and place on the bap lid - enjoy!

Instead of buttering the bread why not try spreading with chutney: caramelised onion, mango or sweet pepper.

Ham and Avocado Open Sandwich

To make sure this is a really fantastic sandwich, use fresh bread that has been topped with seeds: poppy, sesame, pumpkin etc, these will add the extra flavour which will enhance the simple filling.

Serves 2

Ingredients: 4 slices of crusty bread from a medium bloomer style loaf, buttered on one side, &frac; Bag 50g (2oz) Alfalfa or alfalfa-leek, 4 slices of Peppered or Bavarian Ham, 1 Avocado peeled and stone removed, each half cut into 4 slices, 10ml (1 dessertspoon) lemon juice or salad dressing

Method: Coat the avocado slices in the lemon juice or dressing. Place the 4 slices of crusty bread butter side up on a board, divide &frac; of the Alfalfa between the bread slices, fold each ham slice and place on top of the Alfalfa along with the avocado, top each slice of ham with a sprinkle of the remaining Alfalfa. Place two open sandwiches per plate and enjoy!

Instead of buttering the bread why not try spreading with chutney: caramelised onion, tomato or sweet pepper. The salad dressing could also be drizzled over the avocado when placed on the sandwich.

Cheese Sandwich with a difference!

To make sure this is a really fantastic sandwich, use fresh bread that has been topped with seeds: poppy, sesame, pumpkin etc, these will add the extra flavour which will enhance the simple filling. You will also gain extra flavour from the cheese if it is at room temperature rather than straight from the fridge.

Serves 2

Ingredients: 4 slices of crusty bread from a large bloomer style loaf buttered on one side, 25 - 35g (1- 1 &frac; oz) sprouting alfalfa-leek , 4 slices of Leerdammer Original, Jarlsburg or Swiss Emmental

Method: Place 2 slices of the crusty bread butter side up on a board, top with a generous portion of sprouting alfalfa-leek, slightly fold two slices of cheese for each bread slice and top with the remaining bread, this time butter side down  enjoy!

Instead of buttering the bread why not try spreading with sweet chutney: mango, apple, greengage or beetroot.
