View Full Version : Question about grains

Do people eat raw rice?? Is that even do-able?
What about beans? Could one just soak say...kidney beans or navy beans, and eat them raw? Just curious.

I've had sprouted wild rice and many people eat soaked/sprouted beans.
I don't particularly find them satisfying ~ especially the rice ~ and I don't bother with soaking/sprouting anything anymore. Too much work and I like simplicity.

I tried wild rice at a pot luck and it was pretty tasty. A bit chewy for my preferance, but totally possible. It's good for you.
I wouldn't do the sprouted beans though. They don't work well for most constitutions, and aren't really a food for humans... it is POSSIBLE to do it
though I think human beings have proven it is possible to eat anything and live to talk about it

Alissa has a recipe for raw oatmeal; you soak oat groats overnight then in the morning you blend it with a few dates and maybe some fruit. I find it very satisfying and yummy. There are also some granola and cookie and muffin and bread recipies that sound good. I have tried soaked rice and it is ok, like in a cold salad. I have also made raw hummus and thetaste will take some getting used to, sometimes I mix it with a little "cooked" hummus.

I'm planning to make raw lentil paste like the refried beans I used to eat.
From what I've read, kidney beans are poisonous if raw, and jequirity beans are poisonous even if cooked.
Castor beans, coffee beans, and cacao beans are not beans, while peanuts (of which I ate some today) are beans.

raw flour is nice for making things with a smooth pastry like consistancy... sprout your grains and then dehydrate them and then grind them in a coffee grinder
