Recipes Using our New Tricolor Quinoa

Tricolor Quinoa Rejuvelac

Rejuvelac is a general term for a fermented liquid purported to improve digestion of food. Rejuvelac is prepared using whole wheat, rye, quinoa, oats, barley, millet, buckwheat, rice & other types of grain. Rejuvelac can be consumed as a digestive aid & used as a 'starter' for other fermented foods such as raw nut & seed sauces, cheeses, & Essene Breads. Rejuvelac may contain B vitamins, Vitamins E & K, & a variety of proteins, dextrines, carbohydrates, phosphates & amylases. Lactic acid is also produced during the fermentation.

How to Make Rejulevac:
Rejuvelac is a raw food made by sprouting a grain & then soaking the sprouted grain in water for about two days at room temperature & then drinking the liquid. A second batch can be made from the same sprouts, this time requiring only about one day. A third batch is possible but you may not like the flavor.

1. Soak 1 c. quinoa for 12 hours in a quart jar and then drain water.
2. Add water to fill jar about 3/4 full and let sit for one to two days.
3. Drink the water. You can put more water in and make a second batch by
soaking one day.
