Raw hummus... part 2
I just google searched "raw hummus recipe" and went to a page that listed directions, as follows:

1. Soak the beans for 24 hours. Drain, and let sit for 2 to 3 days, until the bean's sprouts are about 1/2 inch long. Rinse the beans once or twice a day.

2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Remove from heat, and let stand for 1 minute. Place the sprouted beans in the hot water, and let sit for 1 minute. Drain. If you do not do this step, the hummus will be awful.

3. Place the sprouted beans into the container of a large food processor. Add the tahini, sea salt, lemon juice, and garlic. Process until smooth, adding water if necessary. It will take 3 to 5 minutes to blend. Let sit in the food processor for 5 minutes to allow the beans to absorb as much of the water as possible. If too thick, add more water, and blend again. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Spoon into a serving dish, and garnish with paprika.

By letting the beans sit in the hot water for a minute would make it not raw, right? And if I don't let the beans sit in the hot water for a minute, "the hummus will be awful"???

sprouting for the first time
so... i soaked chickpeas for 18 hours... now they have been laying on damp cloths and covered with damp cloths for about 18 hours and i've been noticing a faint smell. not good, or bad, but there. kind of sour. i've been washing them about 3 times a day... rinsing and squeezing out the rags. some of the chick peas have also cracked in half and some look like they're shedding. did something go wrong? should i continue letting them sit?

raw food: big problem

i've been vegan for quite some time, and have always incorporated a great deal of raw foods into my diet. i am currently desperately desiring to include more and more raw foods into my life, and in this process have looked into many, many tasty recipes. the big problem is that my boyfriend (who lives with me) is deathly allergic to all tree nuts that we know of. if he has just the littlest speck of cashew dust ingested his throat will start to swell shut. he has had reactions to cashew, pistachio, macadamia, and hazlenut, and is just too scared to even go near any other tree nuts (peanuts are all good... but can they even be used in raw foods a lot? i heard too many raw peanuts can be hazardous.) anyway, he also doesnt have health insurance so he can't even get a food allergy test which drives me insane because he thinks he may not be allergic to almonds because he recalls eating a chocolate bar with them in it when he was little. haha childhood memories are just not enough to cause a potential reaction so he still stays away from them. anyway, i guess you get my point... i don't even bring nuts into the apartment for myself, though i do love them. any suggestions? ideas? anything?
