try almonds instead. you can soak them, or use blanched almonds, or almond slivers, or whatever, they make freakin' awesome hummus, and won't be nearly as carby. I still wouldn't eat them regularly, but almonds make tasty hummus indeed... sunflower seeds make merely 'edible' hummus.
I can't think that the very odd indulgence will cause major trouble. Having said that I have chickpeas, lentils, split peas etc in a cupboard from my pre Primal days and I haven't touched them. Can't bear to throw them out though as I really used to love them. I plan to use them up gradually; give them a good long soak to almost sprouting stage and just use a few at a time.
Why not eat some hummus and see how you feel? Everybody is different, and it's important not to get too trapped in dietary dogma. If you feel fine, I don't think there'd be a problem with eating it every once in a while?
