DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse 1/2 cup of dried chickpeas and place in a wide-mouth container.
  • Cover chickpeas with water, then cover the container with cheese cloth or other mesh, secure with a rubber band or tape, and let soak for 24 hours.
  • Drain and rinse the beans through the cloth, then drain again.
  • Store the jar out of direct sunlight at room temperature atop a kitchen towel. Lay the jar on its side with the bottom propped up so that excess water drains onto towel.
  • Rinse and drain the chickpeas once every 8-12 hours for 36-48 hours (depending on how large you like your peas). The tails should be about 1/4 inch long.
  • Rinse and drain once more, and allow sprouted chickpeas to air dry. To store, place then in a container or plastic bag and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
