Today’s breakfast:

Organic sprouted rye bread

Organic avocado

Organic mung bean sprouts

Home cured salmon gravlax

This must be one of the healthiest life giving breakfasts that I can think of.  I’m really loving sprouted grain bread at the moment, i’m going to sprout some wheat of my own this week and see how we go making the bread from it.  We have been sprouting all kinds of beans and seeds this week, picture heavy post of our efforts to come soon.

I was given a tub of gravlax salts that my bosses partner had made.  It contains salt, pepper, sichuan pepper and sugar.  We purchased a small fillet of salmon to cure the first time to see how it went.  We washed and dried the fillet and packed it with salt and dill, then wrapped it all tightly in plastic wrap and stored it in the refrigerator for three days.  I turned the salmon twice a day to get the flavours to go through the whole piece of fish.  This morning when we unwrapped it I was amazed to find that there wa no fishy smell at all, and that the fish had firmed up and gone a darker red colour.  Delicious!
