To sprout chickpeas:
Add 2 cups* of dried chickpea beans to filtered, cool water and let them soak 8-12 hours (or overnight). Rinse them in a colander under cold running water. Put rinsed chickpeas in a big pot and cover with 3" water, then bring them to a boil. Turn down heat and let chickpeas simmer until they are tender/cooked through, normally around 30-40 minutes.
This makes extra sprouted chickpeas. Use them for multiple smoothies, or add them to your lunch as a salad topper!
To make smoothie bowl:
Blend ingredients in a high power blender or food processor until smooth, soft-serve like consistency is achieved. Add the toppings of your choice and enjoy!
