Making sprouted chickpea hummus from scratch is SO simple, and this is the perfect base recipe to try tons of different flavour combinations! Sprouted chickpeas are a good source of protein and fibre, and the recipe is as easy as throwing everything in a food processor or blender. It’s also very easy to customize for your texture preference by using more/less liquid and blending time.
I love having hummus and rustic crackers always available as a mid-day work snack, or spreading it on a sandwich/wrap like a condiment. It’s also great as a veggie dip, or even on a spoon, we won’t judge. Dress it up with some paprika and fresh parsley and it’s a beautiful addition to a fancy charcuterie board, you really can’t go wrong!
Different variation ideas:
Sprouted chickpeas don’t require any pre-soaking and they cook up in about half of the time!
