Raw Sprouted Hummus

For a complete change of pace today, I wanted to post my experience with the first raw sprouted hummus that I've made. The first job was to sprout some raw garbanzo beans for 2.5 days (they taste wonderful and nutty)...

Then it's time to get going...

  • 1 cup sprouted garbanzo beans (chick peas)
  • 1 tbs tahini
  • 1 lime (juice)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • cumin, garlic, salt, pepper (to taste)
  • 4 sun dried tomatoes (optional)
  • water as necessary (max 1/2 cup)

If you are using the sun dried tomatoes, then chop these in the food processor first. Next add the sprouted beans, tahini, spices and lime juice. Pulse on low until chopped, stopping occasionally to scrape the mixture down from the sides. Then add the olive oil and pulse more until absorbed. Finally add water, a little at a time, continuing to pulse on low, until the desired consistency is reached. Enjoy!

And here are the pictures of the yummy end product, Have a great day!
