Recipe: Raw Sprouted Chickpea Hummus

I posted last month about sprouting seeds and how they are healthier than regular or cooked seeds because they are more digestible. There's other things to make with sprouted seeds than just salads. I personally like sprouted chickpeas and hummus made from them. Sprouted chickpeas themselves are bitter and tasteless but adding oil and spices makes a good hummus. This recipe is adapted from Chef Amber Shea's cookbook Practically Raw.

1 1/2 cups sprouted chickpeas
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
other spices (paprika, cumin) to taste

Mix all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Enjoy with celery sticks, carrots, crackers, or how you would regular hummus.
