Recipe Directions

Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor, and enjoy!
Because of the chickpeas, it has a “cheesy†taste to it, so it would be great as an alternative to nut-cheese!

ItGirl's Thoughts

The perfect party dip! Also great replacement for nut cheese!

1 t. of cayenne and 4 cloves of garlic! Wow! That's too adventurous for me! So I made it with only 1 large clove (which still seemed garlicy to me), extra lemon juice, no cayenne, no chili powder, only cumin. Very fresh and light. I had a big mound of it with my salad and had no trouble at all digesting it. That much cooked hummus would have given me a lot of extra petrol in the tank, if you know what I mean!

The enzymes in raw pineapple might help. Bromelain, the enzyme in raw pineapple, digests protein. So maybe it would help you digest raw legumes. Raw pineapple and legume salad doesn't sound too bad! Think I'll try it to!

I guess I'm the only one who has problems with sprouted chickpeas (and a lot of other sprouted legumes). The send me running to the porcelain throne. It's a shame cuz I really love them. Any tips about how to deal with this. I always end up having to blanch or steam them for a few minutes. :(
