We had a bit of an emergency this week, Miko killed his most favorite toy in the world!
I had to take it away when he started pulling out all the stuffing and hacking on it and break out the back up toy.
Yes, it’s Christmas in July here.
Luckily he seems content with it for now, but Santa is much cheaper and lighter than his treasured moose toy, so it will probably be in pieces tomorrow.
Since I got his favorite tough moose toy from Whole Foods, I headed there after work hoping to score another. But they were all out! So I grabbed dinner instead.
And tried to make it look fancy in a pasta bowl topping with nutritional yeast, but it looked like a big mess.
Good thing it was a tasty mess!
Last night’s dinner was a little more impressive. Awhile back I stumbled on this helpful image on Facebook about which grains and seeds you can sprout and for how long.
And noticed my new favorite grain, Kamut berries, was on the list! And they sprout in just 2-3 days!
So I had to try it, I soaked about a half cup of kamut berries for 5 hours, then placed them in a screened sprouting jar rinsing twice a day. By day three, they looked like this.
And made a great addition to last night’s kale salad.
Sprouted Kamut berries are delicious with a nutty flavor and hearty, chewy texture complementing the salad nicely. They’re not bitter or tough to chew as sprouted chickpeas can be for me and they grow much faster and easier than lentils and other sprouts.
I think I found a new favorite way to enjoy Kamut Berries!
