There’s hummus and then there’s golden hummus.
Turmeric is quickly gaining popularity, so I was surprised not to see any turmeric hummus. I thought I’d give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised with the results! The color is really bright (as Shaun pointed out, it’s the color of pee… thank you Shaun, thank you.) Despite that comment, we both found this hummus SO flavorful. I also added cumin and garlic to give it a boost. I like to top it with crushed chili peppers, parsley and roasted chickpeas. Eat it with roasted carrots, crackers or raw vegetables and you got yourself the perfect snack or a quick healthy lunch.
For the chickpeas, I decided to go with a curry flavor since it pairs well with the turmeric and the cumin in the hummus. Not only do they add flavor to this dish, but they also add a nice crunch. Roasted chickpeas are the best! Am I right!?
I used this hummus to make this delicious chickpea sandwich that I posted on Instagram. Let me tell you, this sandwich is the best vegan sandwich I ever made! I’ll have to post a recipe soon because you NEED this sandwich in your life!
For now, just make this hummus and eat it with all the fresh or roasted vegetables! Trust me, it’s the best. 🙂
This hummus is spiced with turmeric and cumin for a delicious twist. The result? Golden hummus! Top it with curried roasted chickpeas for a delicious crunch.
Add the turmeric, cumin and salt and process until it turns a bright yellow color. Add more water if the hummus is too dry.
Keep in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
