I love lentils, rice and the flavours of the middle east...I'm imaging this warm on a bed of romaine lettuce...MMM:)
Anyone have suggestions as to how this can be done completely raw?
Another discusion I had with RawPeron was about how to sustitute Rice and beans for a raw alternative...I can soak beans well enough I just having trouble with the rice thing. I am a big fan of wild grain rices and the eastern style dishes with rice and assorted legumes.
To be totally raw we shouldn't have to go without these wonderful foods?
Experimenting in the kitchen can be fun! I was thinking if i could soften rice without cooking (maybe sprouting?) then it could be warmed quickly in a pan with oil just don't bring it over the 118F temp...then one could have their Rice and legumes raw and warm too! IDEAS! IDEAS!
I've used this method to make warm dishes before Eg.: Warm coconut oil on med heat then drop onions and garlic in, if it sizzles then the pan's ready, turn it down a hair. Keep them moving and add Zucchini ribbons (shaved with peeler) to pan and toss til warm. I make the Sundried Tomatoe Marinara in Brendans book and gently warm it on low while the rest is prepared. I haven't needed a thermometer I just warm til it's a nice temp for eatting which would be right around 100-110F ish. Basically if veggies start to wilt they've gotten too warm! The Idea is quick and gentle! But I find myself with a little Kitchen savy not often seen in the male genome :) It's from my mother and her mother!
