Like chickpeas and other pulses, mung beans make an excellent base for dip! The curry, garlic and lime give this version a delicious Middle Eastern flair.
Sprouted mung beans may not be in the hummus you’re used to, but trust me, you won’t be sorry! Sprouted mung beans have a light, neutral flavour and wonderful creamy texture that’s perfect for dips. They’re high in protein, fibre and iron, and don’t require any pre-soaking. But the best part is that they take only 10 minutes to cook, meaning you can be snacking on this hummus in 15 minutes.
This mung bean hummus is SO simple, and it’s the perfect recipe to try if you’re new to mung beans! Simply boil the mung beans in water, put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until completely smooth. That’s it! You could customize the recipe with different flavour combinations, but we highly recommend the curry, lime and coconut milk combo, it gives this dip a unique Middle Eastern flair.
