FYI, Rejuvelac is the water in which you have soaked sprouted wheat berries for about 9 hours until they ferment. So, Rejucelac is fermented, sprouted wheat berry water....yuk! I am definitely a proponent of raw food, but this stuff is too radical for me. Let me know if anyone out there actually uses it, and like it.

Well...I can't rate this yet... but also can't wait to try it! I want to add this to some of "Yogi's" recipes for a special dinner for my VERY picky vegetarian girls. I think I will also use plain water..LOL ... well update: July 2/09.. tried it... not my thing but the girls in my family enjoyed it quite a bit. After reading Geema's info on the water, I think I am ok using tap water,hehe. Thank you for posting such a unique recipe.

Good stuff! :) I tried it with the rejuvelac ( I have been making that as a beve of late and think it is yummy... it has a bit of bubble to it, so I think it changes the "chemistry" of the recipe a bit from what H2O would {{maybe???}} )...I also added extra lemon juice and the zest as well because the tart zing really helped to lend a sort of "sharp cheesy" flavor...I used 2 huge hot peppers fresh from my garden and I am not 100% sure what type they are...but they are hot and excellent :) I threw in lots of mixed coarse pepper with the sea salt & added more sun-dried tomato (again increasing the acidity and also adding a bit of sweet to the spice :)--- Really good stuff...served as a dip with carrots and with Raw "tacos" rolled up in lettuce wraps with onion and salsa & onion topping as an all veggie raw "taco"!!! SO YUM! Thanks Missy Wombat :)
