Can you ferment hummus? Absolutely, you can ferment hummus and enjoy healthy flavorful probiotics with sourdough pita bread. I enjoyed this combination.

Lacto fermentation is a method to ferment food to introduce good gut bacteria. When food is fermented, it involves the breakdown of sugars, starches, and proteins, making food easier to absorb in the gut. Research finds fermentation reduces flatulence-causing factors in legumes while improving their protein digestibility as molecular-sized proteins are broken down into peptides and amino acids. Fermentation improves the bioavailability of food. Springer research has cited the benefits of chickpeas and ferments.

Hummus is not a probiotic on its own. But if you choose to lacto ferment it, hummus does become a probiotic food for gut health.
How to make hummus? If you do not want to try out lacto-fermented hummus, stop at the step we try to ferment the thing. You may or may not add olive oil for authentic hummus flavor.
How to ferment chickpeas? Soaking and cooking chickpeas are the first two important steps. Now you might as: why soaking is important for legumes, lentils, millets, and grains. Well, soaking cuts cooking time. Additionally, it reduces phytic acid in legumes.If you try to make hummus with uncooked chickpeas, there is a risk of the legumes going bad and catching mold and bad bacteria.

Take boiled white chickpeas (1 cup) and blend with roasted sesame seeds (1/4 cup).
Also add to the blender roasted garlic, salt, cumin seeds and blend. You may need up to 2-4 tbsp of water to make a fine paste.
Now pour the hummus into a glass container and top with 1-2 tbsp of whey or curd water or lime juice.
Place a bay leaf on top.
Cover with a cloth or loose lid.
Set it at room temperature overnight. If it is too hot in your area, you can shift the lacto-fermented hummus to the fridge after 3-4 hours to prevent it from getting too sour.
Next day, your hummus should have become lacto fermented, packed with good gut bacteria.
It smells good and is flavorful.
The oil-free hummus recipe is a must-try.
