Veges and Hummus: yum! I make hummus from raw, sprouted garbanzo beans. I sprout the raw garbanzo beans (per sprouting instructions from sproutpeople.org). I rinse and drain for 3 days, till they just begin to sprout. then make my hummus for dipping veges or using as a spread on sandwiches. I didnt realize how easy and inexpensive it is to do your own sprouts...another great way to get in your 5-a-day.
1 cup Sprouted garbanzo beans
1 Tbs. tahini
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic (more or less - to taste)
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground white pepper
Hot Sauce of your choosing (optional)
Mix all ingredients to desired consistency using a food processor. (Add more Olive Oil, more Tahini or hot H2O for smoother hummus)-[I personally use hot H2O] Serve.
Spread hummus on serving platter drizzle olive oil + sprinkle paprika over top. Slice cucumber, tomatoes, carrots, etc. and place around hummus or Spread Hummus on flour tortilla, top with Leafy Sprouts. Roll it up. Serve whole or sliced
