You can buy dried chickpeas in bulk at most grocery and health food stores. I was just thinking... I bought mine before I went raw, so they might have been dried at a high temp... You could always ask the people at the health food store.
Chickpeas take on alot of water when soaked. The ratio is 2:1... so for every cup of dried chickpeas you soak, you'll get 2 cups of raw, soaked chickpeas. I can't remember off the top of my head how long to soak for, but if you go to www.sproutpeople.com, all the instructions are there. =)

You can use them immediately. I find after I drain and rinse them, it helps to let them sit in some warm water for about an hour. On another note, you could also try not blending them completely for a chunky hummus - yum!

Another question - after I soak the chick peas (overnight?) do I have to let them sit for awhile or can I use them immediatly?

Thank you for the clarification! I will take one cup of dried chick peas and soak them until they are blendable! Sounds SO good! I have only been eating raw for about three weeks and I am semi-addicted!

You need to tell people if this is two cups of dry chickpeas to soak or if it is two cups already soaked. I mean, in case someone reads it who is not familiar with soaking chickpeas. It's a matter of double the amount of chickpeas:-) Thank you for the recipe!

I think i am going to try this one, all the oil in another recipe i tried made me a bit off lol! Wilkelli~ you can soak chick peas that have been dried to make them raw, just use lots of water to chick ratio, they are thirsty little suckers!
