Ingredients

    Chickpeas (garbanzo beans), 1 cup (sprouted = 1.5 cups)
    *Lemon Juice, .5 cup (Juice of two lemons)
    Water, tap, 1 cup (8 fl oz) - add more if desired.
    Garlic, 4 clove
    *Tahini, 2 tbsp (I used a seasame tahini)
    Sunflower Seeds, without salt, 1 oz
    Paprika, 1 pinch
    *Cumin (ground), .25 tsp (2 pinches)
    *Salt, Redmond Real Salt Sea Salt 1 tsp.

Directions

To sprout the Garbanzo beans - Soak 1 cup of dried chickpeas for 24 hours. Drain, rinse and place in a sprouter (I just used a salad spinner for mine). Rinse and drain twice a day for 2-3 days or until the beans have 1/2 inch sprouts.

When Beans are ready: Boil a large pot of water -4-6 cups. Remove from heat for 1 minute, Then add the Beans for 1 minute (do not skip this step). While you are boiling the water you can get all the other items prepped and into the Food Processor and rinse and drain the beans again before adding to the hot water. Drain and put the blanched chickpeas into the food processor and process for 3-5 minutes. Check the consistency, if you want it thinner add more water at this point. Serve with your favorite item - I am GF so I used Glutino Crackers, carrots, celery sticks etc.

  • I suspect the reason for blanching them is that raw beans, and that includes sprouted beans, have a potentially toxic enzyme that is neutralized with the application of heat. In the past, I've seen a brief steam as the preferred method. - 7/7/11

  • This looks really good and my husband loves hummus, so I'm anxious to try it. I'm just curious. Why do you state "When Beans are ready: Boil a large pot of water -4-6 cups. Remove from heat for 1 minute, Then add the Beans for 1 minute (do not skip this step)."for the blanching part? - 9/27/10

    yes, to blanch and I have also heard that it helps with the texture (if you don't do this some people have said it will make the hummus "grainy")

    I honestly don't know, I just cut and paste the ingredients out of the list that is created from the SparkPeople database. I have wondered that myself. =]
