Raw sprouted Chickpea salad

Garbanzo beans when sprouted are high in protein, fiber and hold essential vitamins and minerals. Beans, nuts and seeds when not sprouted do not have active enzymes and amino acids. Sprouted chickpea salad is a high protein, high nutrient option, and a delicious way to add essential amino acids and active enzymes in your meals.
