View Full Version : Where the beans at!
07-03-2011, 08:48 PM
So i was wondering if black beans, chick peas, or any bean as long as you soak them still raw? I mean of course sprouting them is possible but i don't see many people discuss soaking black beans for salads or chick peas for hummus?
Just a random thought lol

They're raw whether you soak them or not ~ long as they're not cooked.
Might want to do a banana search. There are quite a few posts about beans here.
Personally, never liked raw humus made with beans. Zucchini humus is much better and much less work imo.

With the exception of raw chickpeas for hummus (which I've never tried) I think soaking raw beans and trying to eat them would still be rather hard on the digestive system and most people don't bother. Which is, I think, one of the drawbacks to an all-raw diet -- you miss out on the goodness of beans.

Even sprouted - some beans are not very palatable. On the sprout people website they have loads of stuff for sprouting - and note on a few of the beans that they aren't really good raw....

why would a raw foodie want to bake?

Not to mention, why waste the time sprouting, rinsing, etc. if one is going to destroy the nutrients by baking?

Please do not suggest people eat cooked foods or cook foods on this forum.

I wasn't suggesting that in the slightest - I was noting that not all sprouting is done by those who are raw, and that thus - some beans - are not recommended to raw foodists.
