This tasty nutrient and enzyme rich salad using sprouted chickpeas. Enjoy!
¾ cup cashews
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
½ cup water
1 ½ cup sprouted chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
2 small stalks celery, finely diced
1” cucumber, finely diced
3 tablespoons red onion, finely diced
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1 cup organic sweetcorn
Pinch of cayenne
¼ cup sea veg salad (or more if you’d like)
Himalayan salt & cracked pepper to taste
1. Blend the cashews, salt, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and water in a high speed
2. In a bowl, crush the sprouted chickpeas with a fork or potato masher, leaving some
texture to them. Some people digest chickpeas better when they have been
steamed for 5 minutes first. If this is you, still sprout them, then steam them.
3. If you’re in a pinch, or can’t imagine doing this, you can use pre-packaged ones. If
you’re going this route, get organic and if you can get them in a pouch or box, rather
than a can, you’ll avoid the toxicity that can come from canned goods.
4. Add the remaining ingredients, along with the blended cashews, to the bowl with
the chickpeas and mix with a fork.
5. Serve on a lightly dressed greens. I just like to use a little olive oil and lemon juice to
dress the greens.
