Add this Stonyfield Greek Yogurt Chia Sauce and some fresh fruit
and you have the perfect meal!
1 Cup of Bob's Red Mill Amaranth Grain
Bag of frozen Corn
Bag of frozen peas
Sea Salt (I love pink Himalayan)
1 Tablespoon of Nigella
2 Teaspoons of Black Sesame Seeds
3 Teas of Chia Seeds
2 heaping Tbs. Hemp Seeds
3 Tbs. of Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour (Sprouted Spelt is wonderful too)
Greek Yogurt Chia Sauce -
1 Tbs. of Ketchup (organic or non GMO)
3/4 Organic Stonyfield Greek Yogurt
2 Teas of Chia Seeds
Sea Salt ( one crank should do)
Pepper (one crank or to taste)
Make the Bob's Red Mill Amaranth according to package. Making 1 cup. (you will have loads left over or make a double batch)
While that is cooking, saute a bag of frozen organic corn and peas. Saute with olive oil, add in chia seeds, nigella, pepper and sea salt. Taste it. Add a bit more sea salt and pepper, if needed. Set aside to cool down a bit. The corn, peas and spices are absolutely amazing and I must warn you - you will want to eat it alone. Just wait!
When the amaranth is done, set aside to cool down a bit.
When both dishes have cooled down just a bit (about 5 minutes cooling off is fine)
Add to a stand mixing bowl - add in two cups of the cooked amaranth (you will have a bunch left over in the pan for another dish or just make a double dish of this)
Add in two cups of the cooked peas and corn spice mixture.
Add two eggs.
Add 2 heaping tbs. of hemp seeds
Add 3 Tbs. of sprouted whole wheat flour (spelt is great too)
Mix until blended.
Heat skillet to medium heat.
Add olive oil then drops of batter.
Flip when ready (about 3 minutes) and cook other side.
Place on warm plate in the oven.
And if you have any left over, then are spectacular cold too!
My Notes -
I use organic and/or non GMO products. If a food is organic it does not have GMOs and if it is fair trade - it is not GMO. Please educate yourself on food, it is constantly changing and it is incredibly important for our children's future health.
I am in no way suggesting ketchup is "healthy" - it is an easy ingredient that most moms happen to have in their fridge and put with organic greek yogurt it can make a simple dip quickly. I absolutely recommend to read the ingredients of your ketchup. I only use organic ketchup or Sir Kensington's Ketchup - it is fabulous and non GMO. (a bit expensive, so I only buy on sale)
Whether you use Stonyfield Organic yogurts or not, please buy organic dairy. When the cows eat GMO feed - you eat it! And not to mention the treatment of the animals - factory farmed. Food matters. Eat Well.
I use One Degree Organic Sprouted Flours
Corn is the largest GMO crop and I completely AVOID unless I can find organic. I can usually find organic frozen corn in the market.
