Sprouted Raw Hummus with Garlic & Parsley
This hummus is raw which means its made with germinated and sprouted garbanzo beans (chickpeas). It's vibrant, citrusy and creamy!
- 2 cups garbanzo beans
- ½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
- ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon jalapeno, finely chopped
- 4 cloves raw garlic, chopped
- ¼ cup raw tahini
- ¼+ cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
- 1 tablespoon miso paste
- 1 teaspoon cumin spice
- 5 tablespoon Nama shoyu (unpasteurized soy sauce)
- 1 pinch sea salt
Put the hard garbanzo beans into a bowl. Cover them completely in water. This is the soaking/germinating process.
Soak the beans in the morning for 6 hours. Then remove them from the water and set them into a colander. Set that colander onto a plate or over a bowl in case water keeps draining. Put them in a warm dry place and cover with a paper towel. By the next day they should start to form a small sprout. At that point they are ready. You don't need to grow too long of a tail.
Once garbanzo beans are sprouted, blend everything together in a high speed blender until smooth. You will want SOME texture but no big chunks. Sometimes this requires blending, and then pausing to scrape the hummus down, and then blending again.
