So are Brazil nuts, cashews, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, and pine nuts.
Wheat berries, corn kernels, oat groats, rice, barley, quinoa, buckwheat, and amaranth are also seeds. Sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, flax, poppy, fenugreek ... seeds. Lentils are seeds. Peanuts are seeds. Beans ... kidney, pinto, soy, mung, adzuki ... more seeds. Fresh peas and green beans are seeds.
Seeds sprout. So I thought I'd soak some almonds in water. Yes, indeedy, they sprouted.
I soaked my sprouts with salt and spices and set them up on a rack in my dehydrator (shown) at about 140ºF for a day. Talk about crispy nuts.
Did man evolve to eat seeds?
