For the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. We’re pretty relaxed over here, and stories and photos are as welcome as menus and recipes. When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the button to include with your post. It ties us together visually. Then fill in the boxes of this linky tool to join the fun!
Food on Fridays with Ann
I tried sprouting.Apparently raw foodies include in their diet sprouted stuff, like sprouted lentils and garbanzo beans. I like to try new things, so I tried sprouting garbanzo beans on my windowsill. I divvied the soaked beans into several jars because I thought the sprouts would grow and fill empty space. I found out later they only need to sprout a little bit, so multiple jars weren’t necessary.I don’t have pictures of the next stage, but sure enough, within a day a little sprout popped out of these soaked beans and so when they were a bit longer, I rinsed the beans and sprouts, then whirred them together to make hummus.Some of you will be disappointed to hear my conclusion, but I am going to be honest: I did not like the flavor at all. Even though sprouts are supposed to be healthy and I enjoy culinary experimentation, I will return to my standard recipe that calls for cooked garbanzo beans.
