hummus-11 recipe

 Since people were discussing hummus recipes recently, I thought I'd
 post my favorite. It has a different texture than the usual, but is
 very flavorful. And healthy!
 It uses sprouted beans rather than cooked garbanzo beans. The bag of
 sprouted beans I buy in the natural foods store has a mixture:
 garbanzos, lentils, and a couple other types (sorry don't have one on
 hand to look at).
 (Recipe from New Natives, the sprout company, Santa Cruz(?))
 Makes 2 cups
 1 bag sprouted bean mix (1 3/4 cup)
 2-3 lemons juiced
 2-3 garlic cloves
 1-2 Tbsp. tamari soy sauce
 1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh organic carrot juice
 Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until
 smooth. A blender may need a little more liquid to get a smooth
 My variation: instead of the carrot juice, I grate 2 whole organic
 carrots in the food processor first, then add all the other
 ingredients and process until smooth.
 Great with whole wheat pita pockets.
