Raw Chana Masala
Chana Masala is one of my favorite Indian dishes, I still once in a while go and get some. I have never attempted making this dish or any really ethnic dishes raw, but this turned out better than I thought, it was soooo good. It is really high in protein (more than 21 grams) so it makes a really good post workout meal.
1/4 cup Chickpeas soaked and sprouted
1/2 cup Quinoa soaked and sprouted
juice of 1/4 large lemon
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tsp cumin powder
1-2 tsp curry powder
1. Rinse chickpeas and quinoa separately. Soak for 6 to 8 hours, sprout for around 2 days, then let them drain for a few hours.
2. In a food processor, finely chop Jerusalem artichoke and broccoli. Put in a bowl with Chickpeas.
3. Stir in tomato juice, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin powder, curry powder, garlic powder, ground ginger, sea salt, and tabasco to taste. Mix them all together well make sure everything is wet and covered but not runny.
4. Set that aside covered for a few hours to marinate. (I let it sit while I went to the gym, makes post-workout meal so easy!)
When ready put quinoa on plate and put chickpea mixture on top. Yum!
