How to Sprout Your Raw Beans
Rinse and cover dry beans in filtered or spring water in a glass jar. Cover jar with cheesecloth, sprouting screen, or mesh sprouting lid.
Soak beans at least 8 hours (overnight works great).
Drain and rinse beans thoroughly. Drain by placing jar on an angle to allow air flow to still enter.
Repeat rinsing and draining 2 to 3 times per day. When you wake and before bed are good times.
3 to 4 days for chickpeas/garbanzo beans, or until sprout tails appear and are the length you’d prefer. (1/4 inch sprout tail is recommended for full nutritional benefits).
Same method for other beans and legumes, but timeframe may differ to achieve germination.
Garnish with paprika and pinenuts, or garnish of preference
Place sprouted beans in food processor with tahini and garlic. In a separate bowl or small cup add olive oil, CBD oil and lemon juice. Begin the food processor to blend the solid ingredients, and start to pour oil mixture in. If the consistency is too thick, you can add a little additional olive oil or filtered water to thin to desired texture. Add salt to taste and garnish to preference. Serve as is with pita, pretzels, or fresh veggies, or refrigerate to enjoy later. Best eaten in 3 to 4 days.
