Sprouted Chickpea Hummus by #RawChefYin
Since I managed to successfully sprout my chickpeas in this hot Malaysian weather, I decided to make hummus. This also gave me a chance to try out the new products from the Simply Natural range from @zenxinorganicfoodkl.
1 cup sprouted chickpeas
1 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon Simply Natural organic hemp oil
2 teaspoons Simply Natural Organic Sun-Dried Goji Berry Powder
Lemon juice to taste
1 teaspoon cumin
Dash of smoke paprika
Himalayan pink salt to taste
Place ingredients into food processor and blend till desired texture. I like mine chunky but most people prefer smooth (I think?). Season with salt accordingly.
I served mine with:
- raw celery sticks
- sweet basil microgreens from @greenpatchmalaysia
- raw vegan bread
