My first attempts to sprout chick peas always ended in failure. But then I was set straight at a demonstration by Roar Food. Instead of rinsing twice a day as I have always done for other legumes, I needed to rinse at least 3 or 4 times a day. Just to be on the safe side, I rinse whenever I notice the jar on my sink.
Making the hummus is easy once the chick peas have been sprouted. Here is a Thermomix version of the recipe.
Chick peas sprouted for 1 to 2 days
Basil and other available greens
Condiments to taste - garlic, salt, lemon juice
Blend all ingredients in the Thermomix on speed 4 for 15 to 30 seconds.
