Raw Chick Pea Humus

(Sprouted Chick Pea Dip)

This recipe is one of our personal favourites. We've shared this humus with many of our friends and family. They repeatedly ask what makes it taste so good. The secret is that everything is raw. There are no cooked ingredients in this recipe. That makes it not only taste delicious but means it is packed with healthy vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Far more than is possible with cooked hummus.

Raw foods typically require a little preparation prior to utilization. The chick peas have to be sprouted and allowed to grow until the sprouts are approximately ½" in length before using them (see below). The tahini we use is also raw, ready made. We pick up most of our ingredients at stores like The Big Carrot or in the organic section of other stores.

The Glycemic Index (GI) of hummus is around 6 (low GI is 55 or lower), meaning it is a good food even for diabetics. So don't be afraid to indulge. Serve it with crudités of chopped carrot, celery or cucumber, broccoli tips or cauliflower.



1 cup sprouted chick peas *
1 lemon juiced depending on how juicy it is and your personal taste (you can add a little more if you wish).
2 tbsp raw tahini or almond butter (we use tahini)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
½ tsp of Celtic sea salt or to taste (you may want a little more or less)

Put all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until the chick peas are fully ground and the mixture resembles a paste. When blending the ingredients if you find that the mixture is not mixing too well and you have to keep stopping and scraping the sides down this generally means that there isn't enough lemon juice. When the mixture is happily blending away without any added help then there is enough juice and your humus will be perfect.


*How to sprout chick peas

For 1 cup you need approximately ½ cup dry chick peas (we use organic that we buy in bulk)

Soak the peas in a large bowl generously covered in water for 24 hours

Drain and let sit for 2 to 3 days.  Rinse the peas at least twice a day.

I'm on the computer many hours every day. My back & neck were killing me. I was getting regular migraines. My doctor told me I had carpel tunnel. After the first treatment with Dr. Paul, I started to feel better. Within a few treatments my migraines stopped. At this point the numbness in my hands is almost gone. I feel fantastic! Thanks for everything - Dr. Paul is one of the best chiropractors in Toronto and this is one of the best decisions I've ever made about my health.
