A raw food vegan recipe which I've posted just because it looked interesting. I haven't tried making this at all. I have not accounted for the soaking and sprouting of the various ingredients in the prep time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place sunflower seeds, walnuts, garlic, salt, cumin, olive oil, jalapeno pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, and water in food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Add more water if needed.
  3. Place chickpeas in food processor and process until finely chopped.
  4. Add tahini and miso, processing well.
  5. Add seed and nut mixture to chickpeas, processing well.
  6. Place in a serving bowl and fold in salsa, stirring well.

This is a fantastic recipe!!! I have had this saved in my Zaar cookbook since I first joined and finally took the opportunity to make it playing the 'Healthy Choices Tag Game'...SO GLAD...SO GOOOoooD!!! :) I Had some chick peas on hand and had about 2 cups sprouting (I didn't use jar method...I like to do it in a colander..I find it easier and cleaner) added another about 1/12 cups the next later to another colander batch {{ I liked the effect of the different degrees of "growth" and "crunch"}} :)... I mixed all ingredients as suggested in the machine in batches, reserving some beans for munching and other stuff (**I only had sweet white miso on hand and can't buy more till that's gone** {{$$$}} - it was FINE )...My processor can only handle so much so I mixed the beans & the nut/seed mixtures together by hand after pureeing in batches...I left bits of bean & seed chunks and also added diced jalapeno and sweet red peppers while hand mixing because I like texture......for me this worked better then all "Mush" ! Fabulous flavor, fabulously different and fabulously filling stuff!! :) You can eat this for days and re-invent it as many different snacks and meals...I have had it raw over spinach with my own salsa mix dressing...and my husband likes it as a dip with carrots etc * (we have eaten it right from the container with our fingers {{{YUM}}} :) ** --- we have heated it for burritos with tofu cheese and also topped it with grilled veggies for a huge dinner plate (I could go on and on like that guy on the bus in "Forest Gump" did about shrimp about these beans {{lol}} - but I will stop myself :)...TRY THIS IT IS DARN GOOD STUFF!!! LOVE* LOVE* LOVE* THESE BEANS!! _----Thanks Missy Wombat :) A new HUGE FAVORITE!!!

Great flavor, and it looks so much like refried beans too. Had this with salsa (not the recipe mentioned though), chopped avacado, and minced onion, jalapeno, tomato sprinkled on top. Very yummy! Made this as stated except I didn't use the chick peas because I didn't have any. I realize 3 cups of them would make quite a difference, so my 'beans' ended up with more of an intense flavor from all the seasonings, and had a smooth consistency. Loved it anyway! This also made great nachos with some sprouted grain tortillas cut up and crisped. Missy, thank you for the great lunch (and dinner!)
