View Full Version : PB&J without the PB or J

I created something this morning purely by accident and was absolutely amazed with I tasted it a few hours later!
I took sprouted buckwheat (just developing tails) and put them in the small food processor attachment to my blender. I put in a tablespoon of coconut oil, a couple slashs of balsamic vinegar, and some raisins (2 tablespoons?). Sorry, I didn't measure because I didn't realize how it would taste.
I let it marinate for several hours until lunch time. When I tasted it, it tasted just like...I kid you not...just like peanut butter with grape jelly!

wow, you are creative. What possessed you to put such an interesting combination into the fp? Did you process it first and then let it sit?

I don't have a clue what possessed me...I had the sprouts and wanted to make a pate or something out of them to go with my lunch but didn't have the usual items so I just tossed in a bit of this and then a bit of that....
Yes, after dumping everything in the FP, I blended until only slightly chunky and then tossed into my lunch container. It had a couple hours to marinate before lunch.

oh yum. I have never liked pb and jelly...but I sued to adore peanut butter one whole wheat bread when I was little....your creation still sounds good
I have done somthing similar only I just FP the sprouted buckwheat and then add chopped dates or blend the dates in and it tastes like a pb sandwich...sooooo good. the occasional treat. too bad my buckwheat got moldy really fast, I've never had that happen it was horrible :(

How long did you sprout it for Lunar*Fey? How did you store it? Is your home very humid? Your right it isn't normal for buckwheat to go bad very fast. Yuck!

I sprouted it for a day or two and ate some that same day then stored the rest in the fridge for the next day...took it out and was dismayed to see white fuzz on it! ugh :(
