Raw Sprouted Hummus

With raw hummus, rather than boiling the chick peas, you soak them overnight, then leave them to sprout for a few days, rinsing occasionally.  This supposedly allows the enzymes that help you digest beans to remain in the beans.  So maybe the stupid paleo diet people could eat this.
 After the sprouts are a half inch long, blanch the beans in just under boiling water.  Then make hummus as you normally would with tahini, lemon juice and salt to taste.  And if you want to make it Eileenskitchen style, then add a load of cayenne pepper as well.
