We love to cook and — using nothing but sprouts, grains, and canned or fresh foods — seem to invent a new vegetarian dish almost every day. Here are a few of our recent experiments — and all the whole grains and beans used in the originals came from Arrowhead Mills.

Breakfast Salad

Sam came to the window one morning after chopping wood and said, "Fix something really good for breakfast that's nutritious and different too." So I did.

1/4 cup of chopped nuts
1/4 cup of raisins or currants
1 large chopped apple
1 chopped banana
1/4 cup of wheat sprouts
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise

Mix the above together in a big wooden bowl and then beat together the following with a wire whisk:

1/4 cup of powdered milk
1/4 cup of honey
2 tablespoons of cold water
