Sprouted Lentil Hummus
I love lentil sprouts. I recently ordered the Peasant Mix from SproutPeople (as well as the Moo Mix and I think the French Garden Mix). I have their small sprouter as well, which I love. But in this green multiple tray sprouter, I went for the mixed lentils this time. They are awesome, however I probably made too much at once. I'm not sure how long they last in the fridge.....anyone?
I usually just sprout the regular ol' cheap lentils you get in a bag at the grocery store. Those are good too! You should try those first, if you've never done lentil sprouts before. Then you can go fancy :)
I had so many sprouts, I needed to use them in something besides just adding them to my salads. So...I added them into my hummus and it's delicious!
Sprouted Lentil Hummus:
1 can garbanzo beans
1 cup sprouted lentils
1 clove garlic
1 small tomato or roasted red pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
salt to taste
Blend all together in a food processor until the lentils are mostly broken down. Add more lemon juice if you'd like!
