Ideally one could just dump it all in a food processor and blend it until creamy smooth. I don’t have one, though, and just wholloped on it w/ a potato masher until I was bored—slightly crunchy but just fine.
I also added a teaspoon of lemon-flavoured cod liver oil, since folks with gallbladder issues also have issues (usually old ones) with vitamin D and it just happens to add some lemon flavour. If vegan, add a tiny bit of lemon zest.

Just about everything in hummus sets off a bad gallbladder, but with the magic of sprouting, you can turn those wonderful and evil beans into something that you can enjoy and won’t hurt you. You can also sub in walnuts and avocado for the seasame seeds if you can’t handle them in even small quantities—I find actual tahini is just too much sesame oil.
Goes good with greens and as a spread. Try it with celery in place of the peanut butter that you can’t eat anymore.

It's not that they're toxic, they just stimulate the production of bile, which irritates and causes symptoms for those w/ chronic gallbladder probelms. As for the pickles, I make my own, so vinegar and spices, pretty much. Any vinegar will p'bly do, as they all seem to be o.k. unless you have them too close to bedtime.
I had this yesterday and sufferred no problems, so I'm giving it a "happy pear award(tm)"
They've got jungle peanuts at the co-op and I didn't know what they were -- I'll have to look into it. It's something about those darn beans that makes the gb go "crunch," but perhaps if sprouted a bit they'd be o.k. Thanks.

You can get raw jungle peanuts and grind them into peanut butter. They should be available on David Wolfe's site or www.rawguru.com.

Just out of curiosity, how exactly are unsprouted garbanzo beans toxic to your gallbladder?
