Sprouted Hummus

And all of a sudden, it’s Spring. The season for dips, sharing, and eating outside.

Hummus is one of my favourite creamy dips with flatbread or raw veggies, and also a great salad dressing and spread for sandwiches.  Made with chickpeas, it is high in fibre and protein with a low glycemic index to keep you feeling full and satisfied between meals.

This basic recipe can be rustled up with just 6 ingredients, proving that some of the best tasting things in life are the simplest to make! I use dehydrated pre-sprouted chickpeas as my starting point, which takes less than an hour to rehydrate before it’s ready for hummus-making. Sprouted chickpeas are easier to digest as the process deactivates components that can make minerals contained in the beans otherwise difficult to absorb. I like to think of the end product as “super hummus”: same luxuriant flavour, but with ramped up nutritional value, and less bloating and gas. Major bonus points, imo.
