Whoa, recipes with sprouts? I know it’s a little strange, but to live on food storage without fresh veggies means that sprouts become pretty important. I found this recipe for sprouted wheat patties in some food storage cookbooks.
Grind in your food processor or blender:
2 c. wheat sprouts
Add remaining ingredients and mix well:
2 T. minced onion
2 T. minced mushrooms (optional)
2 T. minced green pepper (optional)
1 egg, slightly beaten
salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste (I used 1/2 t. salt and 1/4 t. garlic powder and pepper.)
Heat a pan on medium heat with 1 T. butter or oil. Form mixture into 4 thin patties. Cook each patty for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Season to taste if needed.
Sprouted wheat patties tasted a lot different than I expected! They had a similar texture to ground meat and almost the flavor, but mixed with the nutty flavor that wheat has. They’re really hard to describe, but they are really good! I think they make an acceptable “veggie burger”. They hold together well and aren’t crumbly at all, even though my sprouts weren’t ground up very finely. I want to play around with the spices more, but you could season them with almost anything.
Having recipes like this will make living on long term storage much easier and tastier.
