Raw Hummus

Hummus is always a pleasant addition to a nibble or a meal. This raw version based on a recipe from the book “12 Steps to Raw Foods by Victoria Boutenko can make a nice side dish or stand as a meal on its own. It is deceptively simple to make and perfect as summer takes hold.

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.

Recipe ingredients:
Chick peas sprouted for 1 to 2 days
Tomato
Basil and other available greens
Condiments to taste - garlic, salt, lemon juice

Instructions:
Blend all ingredients in the Thermomix on speed 4 for 15 to 30 seconds.

Thanks SO much for your raw recipes using the Thermomix! I really can't thank you enough! I just purchased a Thermomix today to assist me with my new raw food journey. I'm eating this way in hopes to heal my body. The company I ordered my Thermomix from doesn't have any raw food "cook" books so I've been a bit anxious about my pricey purchase till now, so THANK YOU THANK YOU!
