Falafel from RAWvolution (Matt Amsden) serves 3-6
3/4 cup sprouted chickpas, ground in a food processor
3/4 cut raw sunflower seeds, finely ground in a food processor
3/4 cup raw almonds, finely ground in a food processor
1/4 yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup Nama Shoyu
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons curry powder
In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Using a 1 1/2 to 2 ounce ice-cream scoop with a levered pinching handle, form the mixture into mounds on a dehydrator tray. Dehydrate at 100 degrees F for approximately 32 hours.

Daughter and I just eat them out of hand, like popcorn. Peas too!

Sprouted, huh...these were only soaked for 24 hours. How do I get them to sprout? :o Or, can I just use them soaked? That's how I made the hummus and it came out good.

Alissa's book suggests soaking for 12 hours, then "sprouting" for 3 days, rinsing three times a day. They won't get "tails" like you are used to...

Hmmm...I may try the falafel recipe, then try 'sprouting' the rest...
Can I freeze raw hummus? I figure I can always make more hummus but I can only eat so much hummus! :D
Maybe I'll try making some chic pea and flax crackers....I hear there is a recipe book coming out...;)

Is it still okay to soak them but not sprout them??

Seems to be...I used/ate them after just soaking for 24hrs and made the hummus. Got the recipe from The Garden Diet website.

Thank you x

I am very new to raw foods and have just found this website. I thought you had to blanch the chickpeas first for a few minutes in boiling water to make them safe to eat but I don't see that mentioned. Can I just eat them after soaking and sprouting? I love this new way of eating and hope to persuade my husband to join my daughter and I. Thanks.

UPDATE: I used the rest of my chick peas and made 'cheese chips'...basically, I used the american cheese recipe from Alissa's book and replaced the nuts with chick peas ...OMG!!! SOOOO good! :D My kids liked them AND my hubby liked them!
