  • 1. sprouting technique & recipe
    sprouted grain tortillas
  • 2. nutritional benefits of sprouting
    seeds become living food as soon as germination takes place, enzymes are then activated which act as catalysts to aid in metabolism, neutralize toxins, and cleanse the blood
    Deactivates anti-nutrients making it easier to digest
    sprouting wheat increases nutrient density

  • 3. How to Sprout Wheatberries
    choose organic, fresh grains
    rinse thoroughly using a colander
    place in a container that has a mesh top and soak for 18-24 hours in fresh water, rinse once or twice during this time
    drain and rinse
    place in a warm dark area
    rinse and drain every few hours
    Grains are ready to use when baby sprouts appear
  • 4. after 2 days of sprouting
    wheatberries
    sprouted wheatberries
  • 5. sprouted wheat tortilla ingredients
    1 cup hard wheatberries
    I actually used a combination of hard wheat, spelt, and kamut.
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten (optional)
    2 tablespoons olive oil (optional)
  • 6. step 1
    After grains have sprouted, mix with salt, baking powder, and gluten.  Pulse in food processor for 90 seconds and slowly add oil if using.  Mixture should form a very soft ball.
  • 7. step 2
    separate dough into small balls, approximately 2 inches in diameter.  It is helpful to add some oil to your hands before handling dough.
  • 8. step 3
    carefully roll dough into circles about 1/8 inch thick and transfer to a medium low temperature cast iron skillet that has been oiled. (I used coconut oil)  Heat on both sides for about 3 minutes until tortillas are lightly browned but still soft and pliable. 
  • 9. breakfast!
    Add a fresh egg, some sprouted adzuki and alfalfa, and a bit of arugula...bon appetit!
