Sprouted chickpeas are a versatile bean, tasting great in soups, salads, stews and hummus! It is normally recommended to soak your beans overnight before you consume them. Well, we take this one step further and sprout them, meaning you don’t need to worry about any pre-soaking! Many people find they have an easier time digesting sprouted chickpeas vs unsprouted chickpeas, and they also cook in about half the time. Feel free to head to our Why Sprouted page to learn more about why this could be.
There are many methods you can use to cook sprouted chickpeas and we unfortunately we can’t list them all on the package. See below for a few comprehensive cooking methods. We hope you enjoy your sprouted goodness!
