Raw Hummus Recipe

Sprouted legumes have a stunning amount of nutrients compared to their dried/cooked counterparts. By some estimates thiamin levels increase 5-fold, niacin doubles, vitamin E and caratene levels increase, and there is more vitamin C than in a tomato. Enzymes become activated making proteins and starches more digestible and, therefore, less gas-producing (always a good thing).


Also, soaking in water neutralizes two “anti-nutrients” present in most seeds/nuts/grains:

  1. Phytic acid, a substance present in the bran of all grains and seeds that inhibits absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc, and
  2. Enzyme inhibitors that can neutralize our own digestive enzymes. You can sprout seeds, nuts, legumes and grains – and it is easier than you might think.

This quick and easy hummus recipe makes a great vegetable dip. Try it with celery stick, cucumber or red pepper slices. I like to spread it on a leaf of chard or any leafy green.
