:p help with chickpea sprouting Please!
I have been craving, craving, craving hummus...I tried the different kinds of veggie hummus recipes, and while good, none hit the spot like chickpea hummus! Soooo....
I went to the bulk bins and got the dried chickpeas, and soaked them for 24 hours. Then I laid them out on a plate to sprout for about 3 days, just like the book says. Except, they never softened up. They got little thick white sprouty things out of the tops, but they never got soft enough, and when I tried putting them in the food processor, they didn't even really chop up! I was majorly bummed, and resorted to my second favorite, a black olive pate...but still. I miss my hummus.
Has anyone made the hummus? Any tips, suggestions, or advice??? I would be forever grateful!
