Sprouted Chickpea Hummus

I like to make this hummus with raw chickpeas. It's a nice change from classic chickpea hummus. The rawness comes through as a fresh flavor that is not at all harsh. My husband describes it as "wheatgrass-y," which he promises is a compliment.

If you are concerned about the safety of eating raw beans or just like the flavor of cooked beans better, by all means, cook them first. Sprouted chickpeas cook in about 15 minutes and are more easily digested than unsprouted chickpeas.
