Raw Juicy YUMMUS HUMMUS Recipe

I posted this yummus hummus photo on facebook yesterday and my inbox filled up with requests for the recipe & sprouting technique.  Ask and ye shall receive…

Sprouting technique:
It’s important to buy your chick peas/garbonzo beans from  a source with good rotation. If peas are really old they won’t sprout. I mention this because it seems to be a common complaint among raw foodies. Chick peas sprout very easily.
Soak them overnight in 3x as much water. The next morning they should be plump and water filled – and at least twice the size. This will help activate the living enzyme tucked away inside.  If they are not yet plump, rinse and soak again for about 6 – 8 more hours.
Once water is drained, leave them out to sprout for 2 – 3 days, rinsing 2x per day.
Rinse well before using. I like to use my homemade veggie wash to clean them.
