Raw Chickpea Hummus

Chickpea or Garbanzo beans has become my new favorite ingredient.  They are high in protein and fiber, and are absolutely yummy if made right.  Chickpea/ Garbanzo beans – like any other nuts or grains – have to be sprouted in the raw world, in order to activate the enzymes and make it easily digestible by our body.

  • 4 Cloves Garlic
