I think I will make Curried Chickpea Garbanzo Sprout Salad for Lunch.
I have been rooting around in my refrigerator trying to come up with something that is on hand that I can make for lunch so I decided to make a Curried Chickpea Garbanzo sprout salad. Usually, I just eat what I have without any further processing or preparation but I wanted something different that had a little pizzaz to it so I made this easy summer salad recipe. Just a little note: chickpeas and garbanzo and chichi beans are all different names for the same bean.
You can't do many sprout recipes without first planning for it because you need the sprouts. But if you live in a household that has some sprouts growing all the time, then it is a little bit easier to make something with what is on hand. And what was available to me today were the Chickpea Garbanzo already sprouted and ready to eat. I am planning to make a raw sprouted hummus but sprouted way too many chickpea garbanzos, hence the other reason for this recipe.
Here are the chickpea garbanzos soaking. After I soaked them overnight, I drained out the soaking water and rinsed them with fresh water and drained out that water. There were only wet chickpea garbanzos left in the bowl, without any standing water. I sprouted a lot of these so just kept them in the soaking bowl, rinsing once in the morning and then once in the evening. Both times I made certain that all the water was drained out and there were only wet beans in the bowl without any standing water. They are soft enough to eat, but cruchy, too, not mushy. So I put the chickpea garbanzos in the fridge until I was ready to do something with them. Like make a salad for lunch.
What to Use to make a Chickpea Garbanzo Salad
I had two small tomatoes from the garden. I diced those. Then I added about a tablespoon of curry paste. Mixed everything all up together and had this salad for lunch after it chilled in the fridge about an hour.

You can soak the garbanzos for 24 hours with a water change in the middle at 12 hours. Drain out the soaking water and rinse with fresh water.
