I'm visiting family in Canada and picked up some Ekezeil sprouted bread and granola-type cereal at the health-food store. I was so excited to try them, but ... they're awful! The bread is heavy, dry and flavorless (granted it had been frozen) and the cereal did not taste very good.<br><br>
Do homemade sprouted products taste better? I'm now thinking that sourdough is the way to go.

We do the Alvarado Street (sp??) for just buttered toast and toasted sandwiches and Ezekiel hamburger buns and we just toast them before we use them. I guess we're just used to it.<br><br>
I can't ever get homemade bread to turn out good enough for sandwhiches <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Ezekiel and sprouted grain bread/products in general DO take quite some getting used to. It really is a matter of training our taste buds until they come in line with what real, nourishing food should taste like.<br><br>
Now- I am totally accustomed to sprouted grain products. I now prefer them to regular wheat products...sometimes the unsoaked wheat products taste lighter, but they make my stomach feel oh so heavy. Ditto that for white flour- gives me gas. But sprouted grain products digest just fine for me.<br><br>
DH is still getting used to them, and is still picky. I am thank-ful he is doing his best though. We found we like the Ezekiel sprouted 7 grains bread over the Ezekiel 4:9 bread which has lentils in it so hence the funny beany flavor. DH hates the Ezekiel 4:9 tortillas because they are tough and fall apart...but dosn't mind the corn tortillas which soften up nicely when sauteed in a little butter.<br><br>
I only find the cereal palatable if I soak it in milk for 10-15 minutes before eating...and add some Rapadura and cinnamon.

I actually really like the bread. I did buy the low sodium ezekiel bread on accident, and it really lacked flavor.<br><br>
I like Ezekiel bread a lot more than my homemade sourdough, and it's so easy to just pick it up at the store <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I think it makes good french toast! But then, I soak it in cream and eggs and fry it so the densnes sort of goes away <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Hmm, yes, I bought the products with sprouted lentils -- maybe that's why they taste a bit odd.<br><br>
I was somehow expecting sprouted products to be more "fresh and juicy" tasting, or more "full of life", but these just taste so hard and dry and lifeless.

quoted for truth, it's my favorite french toast bread. I only eat it toastedor broiled -- makes great garlic toast.<br><br>
I LOVE the cereal as well. I soak it in milk for a bit before eating it, and add maple syrup or honey and frozen blueberries. DELISH! This is my "dessert" actually.<br><br>
I love to cut up the tortiallas in to chips and fry or bake them with butter and coconut oil. SOOOOOO good with sour cream and guacemole and salsa.

I don't use the Ezekiel bread because it contains sprouted soybeans.<br><br>
We do the Alvarado St or Shiloh Farms bread.<br><br>
Sally Fallon said that Ezekiel brand cereal is okay to eat, but I tried it and it made me sick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sick"> Dh liked it okay though!

I made homemade sprouted wheat tortillas, and they were super yummy! The best way to use sprouted wheat, imo. Very easy too.<br>
Just sprout, grind, mix in coconut oil, and a few pinches of sea salt and baking powder (or was it soda?). I have a $10 tortilla press, so it skips having to try to roll them all out. Oh, and I used my juicer to grind/blend the wheat.
