Sprouted Chickpeas are rich in carbohydrates and dietary fiber, both of which will prolong the sensation of fullness after a meal.

A primary benefit of consuming sprouted chickpeas is their high protein content and low level of fat. This makes them an ideal meat replacement for vegetarians and individuals looking to make their diets healthier.

  1. Rinse 1/2 cup of dried chickpeas and place in a wide-mouth container.

  2. Cover chickpeas with water (double of chickpeas), then cover the container with cheese cloth or other thin cloth, secure with a rubber band or tape, and let soak for 24 hours.

  3. Drain and rinse the beans through the cloth, then drain again.
