Chinese Style Recipe from local Soybeans – Mixed Congee

1 Cup local Soybeans (http://epicgardens.com) if you don’t have these in your area.

1 cup Organic 1 minute Oats

2 TBS Org Raw Sunflower Seeds

1 TBS Org Raw Pumkin Seeds

1/4 Cup “Peanut Free Trail Mix” or Gorp.

TBS maple Syrup

1/4 cup grape juice

You can pre-toast all dry ingredients except the soybeans in a large pan with a little oil.  This can be made in large batches used also as breakfest Musili.  The soy beans can be boiled for five minutes in enough water to cover, drained then cooked for twenty five minutes.  Then add one cup of the “Breakfast mixture”, that was toasted, into the boiling soy beans.  Add the grape juice and maple syrup and boil for another ten minutes untill all ingredients are soft still moist and soupy.  Eat cold.
