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.

Recipe: Raw Apricot Bread

On these colder snowy days it is nice to have something with a little more bulk to it.  These dense breads are great just as they are or with a tasty spread, dip, or a little nut butter.  I've made these for parties, to add to dinner, or as part of lunches for the kids.

This sensational bread will delight you with a zest of orange sweetness and chewy apricots. Make apple cinnamon bread too using the alterations below!

Apricot Bread
(Recipe can be found in Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine)

2 c. golden flax seeds, ground
2 c. almonds, soaked
1/2 c. dried apricots, soaked
1 T. orange zest
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1 t. Celtic sea salt
1/2 vanilla bean
1. Soak almonds and apricots for 2 hours.
2. Grind flax seeds in a coffee grinder or a blender (do not grind until super fine; the thicker the mixture, the better the bread).
3. Process almonds in a food processor with the “S” blade until meal-like
4. Process apricots and vanilla bean in the blender until smooth
5. Add some of the apricot soak water to the blend
6. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl; add orange zest, cinnamon, salt, and mix well
7. Form into two loaves approximately 4”x8”x1” and slice into 1/2” pieces.
8. Dehydrate at 145 degrees for 1-3 hours and the 115 degrees for 2 hours, or until desired moisture is obtained.Serves 6-8

Most ingredients can be found on http://www.naturalzing.com/catalog

*Note: For Apple-Cinnamon Bread (replace apricots with c. apples, blended, 1 apple grated and 1/2 c raisins, soaked. Remove zest.)
