All nuts, seeds and grains contain phytic acid which sticks in your gut. Sprouting them eliminates most the phytic acid and also opens raw nuts, seeds and grains up, making them more nutritious and digestible. The seeds in this recipe were soaked in filtered water for about 8 hours. Excesses water was strained off. Herbs and spices were mixed in. The paste was spread over parchment paper and baked in a low oven until crisp.
