End of Winter Sprouted Spelt with Smoked Chili Ragu

Finally the end of winter.  Inspired by the beautiful Drew Gardens and Hella Smoked Chili Bitters, I made my self a sprouted spelt with a smoked chili ragu.  The recipe is very easy, but it takes a little planning because the spelt takes 2 days to sprout.  Once it is sprouted it takes 20 minutes to cook.

Sprouted Risotto with Tomato Ragu
Recipe for 2 as follows:
  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbs. coconut oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 6 plum tomatoes,  finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. Hella Smoked Chili Bitters
  • 3 Tbs. coarsely chopped parsley
  • 1 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1 tsp. chipotle chili, ground
  • 1 cup dried spelt
Sprout the spelt for 2 days or until tender.
In a Sauce pan, Heat oil then add the garlic, onions and mushrooms until brown.
Add the sprouted spelt, peas, diced tomatoes, parsley, chipolte chili and Hella Bitters to the Ragu mixture.

Drew Garden, located off the West Farm's stop in the Bronx, is an oasis surrounded by urban sprawl. The Bronx Green-Up is supporting the gardens fall maintenance, which includes pruning trees, cleaning up dead brush and composting.
