Because for most of the class we will be learning what to sprout, how to sprout seeds in jars and grow microgreens in trays, there will be fewer recipes but more information, since sprouts and microgreens can be added to your own favorite recipes.

However, I will be making a black bean pasta topped with grated orange carrots as my special recipe for Halloween. This is a cooking by the strings of your apron with the amounts to your liking.

Halloween Pasta

My local Acme had a sale on lentil pasta (non-grain), so I bought three boxes: one from red lentils, one from green lentils and one from black beans, which I had never seen. I also added black olives (hard to see) and raw carrot ribbons, but I think grated carrots might be a better choice.  I hope to change it when I make a batch on Friday. Also, add any of the sprouts you grow right before serving.

Utensils: Cooking pot for pasta, peeler or grater
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 7-9 minutes


2-3 ounces pasta (per box directions)
enough water to cover the beans (Directions say 3 qts but they may be for whole box)
Grated carrots or strips
Cooked black beans or black olives for topping
Sauce of your choice. I used pestacado (pesto from avocado, my recipe)*
Sprouts or microgreens of your choice

Directions (from the box)

Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil, salt if desired.

Add pasta. Stir, reduce heat to a gentle boil

Cook 7-9 minutes or until desired doneness.

Drain in a colander; then rinse under note water.

Toss pasta with your favorite sauce.

* Since the idea is to have orange and black dominant, I used less pesto dressing than normal.
