“Raw organic hummus. A treat from traditionally cooked hummus and causes very little gas because all the enzymes are still there. When I serve this I make a depression in the middle and fill it with olive oil. Serve with pita bread, carrot or celery sticks, or small romaine leaves.”

Original recipe yields 20 servings

Directions

  1. Soak the beans for 24 hours. Drain, and let sit for 2 to 3 days, until the bean's sprouts are about 1/2 inch long. Rinse the beans once or twice a day.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Remove from heat, and let stand for 1 minute. Place the sprouted beans in the hot water, and let sit for 1 minute. Drain. If you do not do this step, the hummus will be awful.
  3. Place the sprouted beans into the container of a large food processor. Add the tahini, sea salt, lemon juice, and garlic. Process until smooth, adding water if necessary. It will take 3 to 5 minutes to blend. Let sit in the food processor for 5 minutes to allow the beans to absorb as much of the water as possible. If too thick, add more water, and blend again. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Spoon into a serving dish, and garnish with paprika.

This is actually the recipe that led me to this site a couple of years ago. I didn't love this as is, but I'll keep working with it, now that I have more experience making hummus. For those concerned with the safety of eating this: It's absolutely safe, and it's better for you than "cooked" hummus because it's easier to digest. The problem with the funky smell could have come from your sprouting method. Beans need to be sprouted in a large jar with a mesh or cheesecloth lid, lying on its side (so the beans are spread out) in a dark but well-ventilated area. If yours were moldy, it could have been because there was not enough air getting to them. As for the question of whether this is raw: It's raw because the beans are not cooked; "regular" hummus uses cooked beans and is therefore not raw.

My 4 yo picky non-vegetarian son who likes regular hummus LOVES this recipe. I am so grateful for this recipe. My son and I've recently developed hayfever and we are trying to fortify our bodies with more enzymes from fresh raw food. Other than the basic salad and fresh cut vegetables, I had yet to venture into real raw food prep. This is a great introduction. I did make an error though, I soaked the beans for almost 2 days (changing water twice) and forgot to let the beans sprout, nevertheless it was just as good and I'm sure the enzymes were activated. I also held back a bit on the garlic (i used one big clove) because I wasn't sure if my son would like it too strong since the restaurant versions we usually consume taste rather bland.
