- 7 g Rose radish seeds for sprouts
- 60 g Chickpeas for sprouts
- 100 g cooked organic chickpeas in a can
- 1 clove fresh organic garlic
- 1/2 small fresh beetroot
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 small organic lemon
- 1 tbsp organic light tahini
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch freshly ground, black pepper
- 1 pinch crushed cumin
- 1 pinch cayennne pepper
- Soak the dry organic chickpeas in a glass or bowl. The chickpeas absorb a lot of water, so fill the container with 3 times more water compared to chickpeas.
- After 12 hours of soaking, the chickpeas are ready for your SproutPearl sprouter. There are quite a few chickpeas, so spread them in both halves of the seed tray. That is, 30 grams on each side of the tray. Rinse morning and evening for the next 3-4 days. The sprouts are ripe when the white root is 1,5 - 2 cm long.
- Rinse the sprouted chickpeas. I recommend, that you take a few chickpeas for decoration and give the rest of the chickpea sprouts a short boil in clean water for 3 minutes. This is to neutralize any trypsin inhibitors. You do not have to boil the chickpea sprouts if they have a 2 cm root and you know that even many raw chickpea sprouts do not bother your stomach. If you are in doubht I recommend the 3 minute boil. Put the chickpea sprouts in cold water after boiling.
- Cut the redbeet into thin slices and squeeze the juice into a glass. You need the juice to dye the hummus.
- Drain the cooked chickpeas from the can and rinse with cold tap water. Rinse until the water no longer foams. Then pour all your chickpeas - except the 5 for decoration - into a blender or food processor.
- Pour tahini, olive oil and lemon juice into the blender. Blend for 1 minute. Then add the crushed garlic and a little of the spices. Add a little cold water if you want your hummus more creamy. Blend. Taste and now add the spices that you yourself think are missing in your hummus. Blend as needed.
- When the taste and consistency of your hummus is the way you want it, add the beetroot juice in small drops and blend it until you get your desired color.
- Harvest the rose radish sprouts from the sprouter. You can eat these raw after you rinse them.
- Garnish with the Chickpea sprouts and Rose radish sprouts. Now your purple hummus is ready to serve on fresh bread, for salad or as a dip on vegetable sticks.
