This sprouted peas and mint hummus is perfect as a snack or as an appetizer or even at lunchtime served with raw crackers or bread.
Peas are an amazing source of plant protein to add into the diet and a great alternative to chickpea in hummus for people that have troubles digesting them.
Protein along with their fiber helps stabilizing blood sugar levels.
