i was looking for something besides olive oil to have on my broccoli and greenbeans yesterday. so i threw a few bright green things into my blender and voila!
enjoy this on a green salad, a vegetable salad or tossed with 'pasta' or warm veggies.
My anti-veg hubby said he would try it if its very mild and blendable, so I am going to try it with maybe cashews and romaine-a pseudo pesto. Anything to get him to eat a salad!
1 cup sunflower sprouts
3 T olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup juiced vegetable or greens
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 bunch parsley
1 small bunch lettuce-romaine is mild and creamy, spinach is hearty and arugula is spicy
spices-pepper, curry, etc.
(some substitutions include nuts instead of sunflower seeds, coconut oil instead of olive oil, and other fresh herbs such as basil or cilantro)
blend sunflower seeds with a little water to make a smooth cream. set aside in a bowl. blend other ingredients until smooth, then add back the sunflower cream and blend thoroughly. you could do it all at once in a vitamix but i have a humble 1/2 hp blender so i had to do it in steps.
refrigerate, and stir each time before use. it gets a little dark on top but if you mix it in it looks and tastes fine. better than fine, delicious!
