Have you ever made hummus at home?
If not, you’ll be surprised to know it’s soooo much more delicious than the store-bought brands. I would warn you that you’ll always want the homemade kind after trying it, but it’s so easy, it doesn’t require a warning.
We sprout the garbanzos beforehand, which takes time but not much effort. Directions for doing so are in the recipe. Sprouting makes them easier to digest, which means you get more of the benefits nutritionally.
Once you do that, it just takes a few minutes in a food processor to have delicious hummus you’ll want to eat all day long. And you can!
In fact, eating snacks like this hummus along with raw veggies like radish, celery, red or yellow pepper, cucumber, or jicama if you’re hungry between meals is an excellent way to prevent weight gain as well as headaches that come from a drop in blood sugar.
On Thursday, I’ll share Why Preventing Headaches Is Easier Than You Think.

HOMEMADE GARLIC HUMMUS
Ingredients [Serves 4]
2 cups garbanzo beans
5 cloves garlic
1/2 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1/4 cup raw sesame oil
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup raw tahini
3/4 cup filtered water
1 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
Optional: Garnish with paprika or smoked paprika
First, sprout the garbanzo beans. Soak them overnight in plenty of filtered water. In the morning, strain beans and rinse in a strainer and let sit in the strainer 10 to 12 hours minimum before using. (They may swell to almost twice their original size.)
Mix all ingredients except garnish in a blender or food processer until smooth in texture. Sprinkle with paprika, serve with raw vegetables, and enjoy!
