  • Place the carrots, sprouts, mint, cashews and raisins to a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Pour the tahini dressing on top and serve.


  • What are vegetable sprouts?
  • Vegetable sprouts are the most concentrated forms of living foods. When you soak and germinate seeds of vegetables, after 3-5 days, a white tail emerges from them. The seed, along with the tail are called vegetable sprouts. The easiest ones to grow in India are alfalfa, clover, radish and fenugreek.
  • When you apply water to seeds, the seed absorbs the water and swells to at least twice its size. Not only does it swell in size, but it also swells in nutritional content. Sprouts are 10 to 30 times more nutritious than the full grown vegetable. They are plants in their baby stage. At this stage, they have the greatest
  • concentration of nutrients than at any other point in their life. They are able to release these nutrients into our bodies because of their delicate cell walls.
  • This makes sprout a true “super food”. They are one of the most LIVING FOODS in nature. Living foods are foods that create new life when planted. That small radish sprout has the life-force to grow a full-grown radish out of itself. This life-force is transferred to your
  • body when you consume them. Think about this, when you eat a sprout, you are eating the life-force energy that is needed to create a full grown healthy plant.
  • Sprouts have been used as a health food throughout history. The Chinese have been using bean sprouts for centuries, since 3,000 BC to be exact, and swear by their healing properties. During world War II, sprouts were eaten as a source of protein.
  • Even Lord Jesus, in the Essene Gospel of Peace, recommends sprouting and explains how to make sprouted bread (also called Essene bread).
  • However, in India, people only know about lentil or bean sprouts. Barely anyone knows about vegetable sprouts. I learnt the concept of vegetable sprouts from
  • Hippocrates Health Institute, where they are curing even third and fourth stage cancers by putting people on a raw food diet rich is vegetable sprouts.
