Tips & Tricks
Seeds, especially legumes and grains, add starch and other components to the water used for soaking and sprouting. It is therefore important to rinse sprouts thoroughly at least every 12 hours. If using beans that will not be cooked, rinsing every 6 hours, especially during warmer temperatures, is recommended.
Sprouting chickpeas usually takes 3 to 4 days depending on how many chickpeas you are using and how long you want your sprout tails to be.
We recommend tasting the sprouts (not the beans) daily to understand how the flavor is developing.
Once your sprouts have reached the flavor and length you like, stop the rinsing and draining process. Your sprouts are finished!
You can store sprouted garbanzo beans in the refrigerator in a jar with tight lid for up to 1 week.
Soaking and sprouting garbanzo beans makes a rich and creamy hummus. All it takes is cooking the sprouts until they are soft and blending them with some tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and earthy spices.
