Sprouted Budgie Salad

Submitted by: Mary Anne Buckles

This is MY recipe. I was given a rather complex one by the man I bought my original budgies from but I find this one easier and the budgies love it. I mix it up once in a while with other things but this is the basic recipe. I find that budgies love the sprouts.


What You’ll Need:

  • Screened sprouting jars
  • Food processor

Ingredients:

  • Seeds for sprouting
    • Black oil sunflower
    • Oat
    • Wheat
    • Lentil
    • Any and all of the heartier seeds
  • Kale or collard greens
  • Carrot
  • Barley and/or dried peas (cooked and dried)

Steps:

  • Step 1: Soak seeds in screened jar. Rinse all seeds 2 times a day. Seeds will sprout and are ready for use in 3-4 days.

  • Step 2: When seeds are ready, rinse seeds a final time making sure they are not dripping wet.

  • Step 3: Put all sprouted seed into a large bowl.

  • Step 4: Using a food processor, grind up the kale or collard and then a large carrot and add them to the large bowl.

  • Step 5: Add a sprinkle of barley and/or dried peas.

Will last refrigerated for 3-4 days.
