Sprouted hummus is definitely an aquired taste. But it does go well with flaxseed crackers or with kalamata olives in it. I assume it would be nice with sun dried tomato, but my wife can't have that. I've also used it as a salad dressing.


I have the best raw hummus recipe for you! No need to cover the taste with extra garlic and jalapeno.

2 medium zucchini, peeled and chopped (about 2 cups)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
dash of cayenne
1/2 cup sesame seeds, soaked 4 hours, rinsed and drained
1/4 - 1/2 cup raw tahini to taste

Put everything except sesame seeds and tahini in high speed blender and process until smooth. Add tahini and sesame and process until smooth.


Also fantastic with added dehydrated and ground red bell peppers, or garlic and garlic powder, or ground sun dried tomatoes.

Eric replies: This sounds great -- I'll try it!
