This is a combination recipe that is great for refried beans. The original is from Robyn Boyd and is in her book RawSome (mostly raw with some cooked…has kid approved recipes) Her version used 2 cups of almonds only and the rest of the OPTIONAL ingredients and she used Wholeearth Latin AMerica Spice blend instead of the herbs listed. This version is from my friend Beth who is a Raw Chef and likes to keep the power of the spice in your hands!
Refreshing! Looking into my mother’s fridge yesterday, I found a little store-bought container of tabouleh. I looked at the ingredient list and replicated the recipe, tasting to find good proportions, and substituting quinoa sprouts for the cooked buckwheat traditionally used in tabouleh. Do make sure you wash the mint especially throroughly, and only use the leaves, as it has little hairs on it that can irritate one’s mouth. The ingredient list indicated that alspice is usually used, but since I didn’t have any non-irradiated alspice on hand, I didn’t include this in my version. I do encourage you to try it with alspice and let me know how it goes!
