Toasted Sunflower Seeds

By |February 2nd, 2017|

When I make toasted sunflower seeds, I make lots and keep them around for sprinkling on salads, steamed vegetables or on a grain like brown rice or quinoa. This is very simple as long as you stir them consistently.

Ingredients:

2 cups sunflower seeds
Braggs or tamari
Large frying pan
Big wooden spoon 

Directions:

  1. Dry roast the seeds in frying pan until golden brown.
  2. Stir continuously to avoid burning them.
  3. When the seeds start to brown turn the heat down to low, stirring them constantly until the majority of the seeds are a light to medium golden brown or to your preference.
  4. Remove pan from heat and take the seeds out right away to stop them from browning. 
  5. Put them in a bowl.
  6. Spray with Braggs or sprinkle with tamari.

Pomegranate Juice

By |January 20th, 2017|

I love pomegranate juice and decided to make it in a blender rather than a juicer for two reason. This is because it is easier but mostly because when the seeds are totally broken down they add a bitterness to the juice.

Ingredients:

1 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup clean water

Directions:

  1. After washing the pomegranate, cut the crown portion on top. Cut through the outer skin from the top to the bottom on two sides thinly, now tear the fruit into half and remove the seeds from it.
  2. Put 1 cup pomegranate seeds into a blender with 1/2 cup water.
  3. Do not put on to blend, start by pushing the pulse button a few times; this will help the outside part of the seeds to release their juice.
  4. Best not to blend it because when the seeds break, the juice turns bitter.
  5. Once you have the juice out of the seeds, use a strainer to sieve the juice out of the pulp.
  6. Use a big spoon to press pulp to extract as much juice as possible.
  7. Discard the remaining pulp and seeds (or mix some salt with it and enjoy it alone).
  8. Drink and enjoy right away immediately to get as many nutrients as you can.

Here are a couple of very yummy recipes for you too.
