Yes I used to do it. They are nasty. I wouldn't bother. Fresh fruit is so much better, and better for me.
Without tahini, lemon juice, and a bunch of salt, and a blender, chickpeas just aren't yummy! Dr. D would say this means we weren't meant to eat them, I'll happily agree :)

And RayKey is right...just don't bother! They're super hard to digest, too...good recipe for a stomach ache
It's RawKEV lol
soz bro!
i prefer normal green peas over chickpeas. Normal peas don't need soaking and they feel like a great addition to my diet. They have become a staple in my diet in the last months. Recently started experimenting with mung beans. My wife's from India, were they are eaten soaked and raw. Until now, I'm quite positive about them. According to FitDay.com, they are very nutritious.
I tried sprouted chickpeas for raw hummus, and they gave me such gas and tummy ache!

I would skip it, myself.
Whatever you do, don't try doing that with kidney beans...you WILL spend the night throwing up! TRUST ME...I speak from experience! Haha. And I've tried sprouting chickpeas but the smell reminded me of the unfortunate kidney bean experience so they repulsed me and I threw them away immediately...if you smell them and still want to eat them, maybe you will be fine. But I agree with everyone else here...a mango sounds a lot more appetizing!
I found out the hard way as well, I think I'm gonna steer clear of beans.
you can eat whatever you want!

there are no rules, only consequences. eat them and see how you feel! read this post for newbies.
Yuck. Life can be so complicated..... or so simple. Your choice.
Um, yes, but why would you want to? :)

If you're looking for a raw version of hummus, better to make one of the recipes that use blended zucchini and tahini (and, of course, garlic, salt, spices...)

These kinds of uses of beans and legumes and seeds (ie:sesame seeds in tahini) usually necessitate the use of lots of unhealthy ingredients in order to make them palatable.

Whereas fresh, ripe, raw fruit... Yummy au naturel!
you can just eat em by the handful when they are dry.
you can soak em and eat em by the handful.

on paper they look good, but in reality they digest like little bottles of gas and youll be blowing the quilts off you that night! :)

save em for armageddon. fruit fuels and nourishes a body better.
