Sprouts!

The wheat berries have sprouted!

wheatsproutsI put them in a salad with some chick peas, carrots and red onion, as well as the leftover citrus vinaigrette from the other day.

IMG_0322They have a chewy, slightly crisp texture and a green, fresh taste, kind of raw on the tongue, but pleasant!  They offset the rich chick peas nicely.  The vinaigrette, with its touch of spice, works very well with them.  The whole thing is filling and feels clean and energizing – your body will thank you all afternoon, until you stop in the midst of goddamn Christmas shopping and eat a cookie.

Next: mung bean sprouts.
