Vegetables for a Long Life

A VEGETARIAN SANDWICH SPREAD

Fresh vegetables              Tortillas (wheat)

Bean sprouts (meng or other)

Peanut Butter, crunchy or not as you will

      Dice vegetables in small pieces and mix with bean sprouts; pour boiling water over them in a container, let them sit for 10 minutes, and then drain. This will soften the vegetables without overcooking them. Add the peanut butter. Ready to serve.

      You may use the spread on tortillas, roll them up, and then hear in a moderate oven. This spread can be used on bread, or any other way you choose.
