Recipe Ingredients for raw hummus (sprouted chickpea version)

2 cups raw chickpeas (sprouted)
3 tbsp tahini, raw
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for raw hummus (sprouted chickpea version)

  1. Take 3/4 cup of dry chickpeas and soak them for about 36 hours, changing the soaking water every 8 hours. Then drain thoroughly and sprout for 2-3 days, or until the chickpeas have 1/4" tails. Chickpeas tend to mold and ferment easily, so it's important to rinse and drain very thoroughly.

  2. Put the sprouted chickpeas in a food processor along with the olive oil and lemon juice. Grind the mixture into a smooth paste.

  3. Add the tahini and salt. Blend thoroughly.

  4. Add more olive oil and/or water if the mixture is too pasty. If it's too liquid, add more tahini.

  5. Blend in seasonings -- whatever you like! Fresh basil, sundried tomatoes, red peppers, eggplant... all good.
