Every product in our Local Delicatessen has a story. We know the producers, talk to the farmers and generally – learn a lot from the people who bring us our food.
This is our story of the sprouted burghul.
A few months ago, in winter, our friends Amit and Adi sent me (with a mutual friend) a mysterious parcel, with a written note attached.
Here is what the note said:
Belongs to Amit and Adi, species: Inbar
– Roast in a pan until brown. A nice smell spreads in the room.
– Add water (1.75 times in quantity) and cook on a small flame until the water evaporates (like rice).
– Put a towel under the lid (as our grandmothers used to do) and wait an hour.
If succeeded, you have a 100% local, healthy and rich product, that can be used instead of rice.
Liked it? Tell your friends.
Didn’t like it? Tell us.
Have a nice week,
Amit and Adi
After a short while I phoned and told them that I am addicted and they should prepare more for me.
The burghul that we buy in the supermarket is, in fact, cooked whear (most of the time just the endosperm = starch = white flour), dried and coarsely (or according to demand) grounded. Therefore it is easily cooked, sometime just by soaking.
The wheat that Amit and Adi are using is local hard wheat, that grew in dry farming, as done here through history.
After the harvest the seeds were sprouted, and the process dismantles the acids and the verity of protection elements in the seeds, which makes it more nutritious to the human digestive system.
These seeds were dried in the sun’ and made into sprouted burghul, nutritious healthy and filling. This is a local food and historical roots.
Here is my recipe, based of the one I received from Amit and adi.
1 cup sprouted burghul
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 spoon olive oil
1· Roast the burghul with the oil on a small flame 5-10 min. until brown.
2· Add the water and bring to a boil.
3· Lower the flame and cook until the water evaporates (like rice).
4· Turn off the flame, cover with a towel for 15 more minutes.
I like to serve it with fresh salad. I always think about Amit and Adi and the incredible efforts put into preparing this wonderful food.
Where can you get it? At the moment only from us or from Amit and Adi – 054-2286122.
