What IS it?
Eat to Live’s Vegetarian Vegan mix is a delicious blend of specially chosen (for their nutritional wow factor) seeds, grains and pulses. We use a specially imported grinder to grind some of the ingredients to a fine texture. This enables fast hydration, and allows the flavours to all mix and mingle into a super tasty “fast food”. The focus for us is on sustainable nutrition that is animal and planet friendly, and a powerhouse of tastiness.
How do I USE it?
Simply measure out the quantity of vegetarian vegan mix you need, hydrate it with water and let it sit for 5 – 10 minutes. Use this time to prep the rest of your meal. Shape and lightly fry until the outside is golden brown, in the oil of your choice (add more nutrition here by using Coconut or Grapeseed oil)
Shapes & sizes?
A quick guide, (but we know you’ll come up with your own uses too, and we’d love you to share your super smart ideas with us)
Falafel balls – tuck into wraps or pita breads
Teeny ball / burger shapes for snack platters, to top salads, roast veg, pasta
A crumble/sprinkle to top salads, pastas, roast veg, sandwiches, wraps, mixed into brown rice for some crunchiness, etc
Is it GOOD for me?
Um YES! apart from the fact that there are NO preservatives and NO additives, it’s also:
Is it VERSATILE?
It’s so good on it’s own, you don’t need to add anything at all, (we do recommend a quick grind of Himalayan salt to taste) BUT when you want to up the ante, then
in SO many ways –
1 – Add extra flavouring to the hydrating water. Some of our favourites are soy sauce, tabasco, smoke essence, HP, Worcester sauce, pesto. As you can see the list is endless.
2 – Add more yumminess to the hydrating mix like: spices, finely chopped herbs (Basil mmmm), chilli, fresh garlic, onion or any other chopped veg, like green beans, butternut, sweet potato, broccoli, you name it! (clever moms can use all their secret super mom skills here! ) It’ll be the number one bite size snack in your kids lunchbox for sure.
Does it LAST?
Yip, 6 months in the zip lock pouch or a sealed container.
You could hydrate the whole packet, and make your desired shapes – then freeze in an airtight container. Cleverly saving yourself the soaking and shaping time and when you need them, grab them out the freezer and slip into your preheated oiled pan!
