Hi I am a newbie! ON the thirty day challenge..for forgive me when I really don't know the answers..........
I made a recipe for hummus. It called for three cups of germinated chickpeas...So I soaked three cups and they grew three times there size. That said I had twice the ammount. I double the recipe, love the hummus but I have way too much of it. Can I freeze it? Or is that against all RAW food laws :rolleyes: ...what would you do if you were me?

Im not sure on if its ok to freeze when going raw, I do it cos its more conveinent, now I think of it it cant be to bad as lots of the recipes use frozen bananas, but I can say I made the hummus and when I defrosted it, although it looked the same it didnt taste good at all, yet when it was fresh I really liked it.

Freezing food causes them to lose 20-30 percent of their nutrients and does not destroy the enzymes. This is not bad at all, considering a lot of produce at the market has been shipped and can actually be 1-2 weeks old. Their nutrients have been depleted also.
Here is what Victoria Boutenko says about freezing:
"Freezing is a natural process, many wild animals like deer eat frozen grass, and branches of trees, during the winter. However, I have noticed that when I freeze soups, they are not as tasty as fresh. See for yourself"

When I made too much hummus I dehydrated it and made crackers. I even enjoyed them.

I don't know about raw hummus but when I froze the regular kind it came out watery and mushy when defrosted.
