Happy Belly Deli's Alpha Omega Salad

Here is a grain, vegetable, seed and cranberry salad called The Alpha Omega that I just love. I picked it up at the Happy Belly Deli at the Roanoke Natural Foods Cooperative. I was quite pleased to get this recipe because I've bought this many times and wondered what all was in it. I thought I had it all figured out but I was missing a few things. Until now. Mystery solved!

The recipe serves quite a few (15-20), so it is good to take to a large gathering or you can half the recipe.

Mung Bean Hummus

To look at the tiny, green Mung beans, you would never guess how amazing and versatile they are. Mung beans are used to make cellophane noodles, dumplings, soups and they also produce delicious bean sprouts. They are even used in desserts in some Asian countries. Now, the little Mung bean is even appearing in my hummus recipe this week. 

What you need:

1/2 c. dried mung beans

1 1/2 c. water

2 tsp ground cumin 

1/4 tsp salt

3 TB fresh lemon juice

2 TB tahini

1 tsp garlic paste

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Summer Soup

I had been wanting to make a cold, summer soup and I was so pleased to see cucumbers and some early peaches at the farmer's market this week.

Luckily for me, the herbs came from pots on my back porch, and I already had all of the other ingredients which I think wound up blending together beautifully. This is not a difficult recipe at all but does require a bit of prep with the vegetable, fruit and herb chopping. Once that is done though, its all about the food processor or blender doing the work.
