Meatless Monday Is Sproutabulous!!!

For this Meatless Monday I decided to prepare a healthy raw sprout salad using different types of sprouts. This is rather easy to do and a great alternative to meat. You can choose the type of sprouts you wish, I chose to use lentil sprouts, black-eyed pea sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, green & snow pea sprouts, some scallion, and I also prepared some sprouted wild rice by soaking 1/2 cup of the grass (yes, wild rice is a grass/aquatic seed) in water for 2-3 days, changing the water 3 times per day. This causes the rice to sprout and become softer but not as soft as when cooked. I added tomatoes to give the salad a different texture and tossed it all up in a light white wine vinegarette I prepared. This turned out delicious and satisfying, so be sure to make enough so you can bring a bit of it to work with you for a hearty and healthy lunch. Bon Appetit!
