Sprouted Garbanzo Beans and Greens Usili | Sprouted Kala Channa -Turnip Greens and Radish Greens Scramble | Vegan and Gluten Free

Sprouted Garbanzo Beans and Greens Usili

Hi Supermoms,

Did you read my 'Vadlet' recipe? 

I was so happy the way it tasted . So many healthy ingredients in one dish. So good for children as usually they are not so excited to eat greens or  sprouts. But while eating Vadlets, there was no complaints as it tasted so delicious. 

Now, for the older family members, I have combined the same ingredients like the radish-turnip greens and Kala channa Sprouts to create a pan fried, less oily and tasty recipe. Cooked in a pan , this Usili is so good to eat as a starter/snack or as a side dish that can be served along with your meals. 

This is another interesting recipe my from kitchen to yours , with simple and easy to follow steps. Do try when you buy your radish and turnip greens .Do not discard/throw them away.  You can also try this recipe using beetroot greens . 

For those who are cooking the greens for the first time, here are a few tips that will help you confidently cook them.
a. Remove the thick stem that is running in the centre of the leaf as it will be difficult to cook them. 
b. Wash the greens well before chopping them.
c. Wash them again after chopping them . 

I added some roasted peanuts as garnish . You can always add nuts and dry fruits of your choice if you are serving the Usili as a snack.
