mesa tendida 2 - CopySprouting grains (rye, red hard winter wheat, quinoa) and beans (red lentils)

Rinse one cup of the grains or beans three times with filtered water to remove impurities. Place in jar and add enough filtered water so that it doubles the size of the beans. Soak for 8 hours (or overnight). After soaking, rinse again with filtered wáter and allow to sit inside a sprouting bag or jar so that the wáter drains. This will start the sprouting process. Rinse twice a day until a little tail starts to grow. The materials you will need are: sprouting jars, sprouting bags, bowls, filtered water.

Sprouted quinoa could be used in salads and to substitute rice in veggie wraps/ sushi.  In order to grow wheatgrass, you will need to sprout red hard winter wheat. You can also make a delicious salad with sprouted red lentils. Instructions to follow:

Wheatgrass

Serves as an awesome detoxifier, antioxidant, and to alcalize our blood, to suppress hunger, as a powerful healing agent, even of chronic disease as cancer, diabetes, etc.

Rinse one or two cups of the red hard winter wheat berries three times with filtered water to remove impurities. Place in a big jar and add enough filtered water so that it doubles the size of the grains. Soak for 8 hours (or overnight). After soaking, rinse again with filtered water and allow to sit inside a sprouting bag or jar so that the water drains. This will start the sprouting process. Rinse twice a day until a little tail starts to grow. After 2 or 3 days the grains are ready to be placed in organic compost inside a flat. Cover the sprouted wheat berries with a paper towel and water. Cover it and keep it in the dark. Water every day. The third day, lift the cover and allow grains to grow in the light (away from direct sunlight).  If it’s too humid, don’t water. This is a winter grain, it doesn’t like the heat or humidity. When it grows 7 cm, harvest and juice. It’s the optimal time of the plant.

How to make compost

Place all the vegetable and fruit left-overs in a dark bin and mix with dry leaves. Turn around several times a week and keep it moist. In time, the material will decompose and as a result, the compost will be produced.

Cómo germinar granos de centeno, lentejas, quinoa

Remojamos una taza de cada grano o frijol en agua filtrada por 8 horas (primero se enjuaga 3 veces con agua filtrada, y después se le agrega agua suficiente como para que se mantengan los granos tapados cuando aumenten su volumen). Después del remojo, se vuelven a enjuagar y se dejan en una bolsita con agujeritos (como media de nylon) o un frasco con una bolsita arriba, a que se escurra el agua, y el aire comience el proceso de germinación. Dejar que crezca una pequeña colita (dos o tres días).

Ensalada de lentejas rojas

Lentejas germinadas de 3 días

Limón o lima

Ajo picado

Cebolla roja

Cilantro picado

Wheatgrass (hierba de trigo)

Sirve para desintoxicar nuestro cuerpo, como antioxidante, para alcalinizar nuestra sangre, para suprimir el hambre, y como poderoso agente curativo, incluso de enfermedades crónicas, como el cáncer, la diabetes, etc.

Lo hacemos con dos tazas de trigo candeal remojadas en agua filtrada por 8 horas (primero se enjuaga 3 veces con agua filtrada, y después se le agrega agua suficiente como para que se mantengan los granos tapados cuando aumenten su volumen). Después del remojo, se vuelven a enjuagar y se dejan en una bolsita con agujeritos (como media de nylon) o un frasco con una bolsita arriba, a que se escurra el agua, y el aire comience el proceso de germinación. Dejar que crezca una pequeña colita (dos o tres días), y entonces ya están listos los granos para trasladar a tierra orgánica para cultivar. Se colocan los granos en la tierra y se cubren con una toalla de papel, que se remoja un poco y se cubre con una tapa. Los dos primeros días deben permanecer en la oscuridad. Se riega todos los días. Al tercer día, se levanta la tapa, y se deja crecer los granos a la luz (no sol directo). Si hay mucha humedad, no regar. Este es un grano de invierno, al que no le gusta ni el calor ni la humedad. Cuando llega a crecer unos 7cm, cosechar para el jugo, ése es el momento óptimo de la planta.

Abono

Poner todos los restos de vegetales y frutas en un recipiente a oscuras y mezclar con hojas secas. Darlo vueltas varias veces por semana y mojarlo (no mucho). Dejar que se haga el abono con el tiempo.

Cómo cultivar las semillas del repollo (col) rizada (kale)

Poner 3 semillas en los bordes de un recipiente con abono a una pulgada de profundidad, tapar con el abono y regar. Regar todos los días hasta que crezca y trasladar a un recipiente más grande.
