Method

  • Soak the chickpeas overnight and sprout them for a couple of days.
  • Put all the ingredients into a bowl and blend until smooth.
  • Adjust seasoning to taste.
  • Do experiment with the ingredient quantities, as everyone likes their hummus differently.
  • Will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
  • Alternatively, if you don't like the taste of raw chickpeas or have trouble digesting them, you can also soak the chickpeas overnight and cook them until soft. That can take over an hour in a regular saucepan or 20 minutes in a pressure cooker.
  • Serve with raw vegetables, such as carrot and celery sticks, or with pitta bread or oatcakes.
