Turmeric Hummus



  • 1 15-ounce organic can or box of Chickpeas, drained

  • 1-2 cloves Garlic, minced

  • 1-2 tsp. fresh grated Ginger

  • 1/2 tsp. fresh grated Turmeric + 1/4 tsp. Turmeric Powder (or just use 1/2 tsp. powder if you can’t find fresh)

  • 2 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 T. fresh Lemon juice

  • 2 T. Tahini

  • 1/4 tsp. Pink Salt


Add drained chickpeas, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, ginger, fresh turmeric, ground turmeric, and salt to a blender or food processor and blend on high until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more garlic or ginger for spice/zing, lemon juice for acidity, salt for saltiness, grated turmeric for earthiness, or cayenne for spice. I added a bit more ground turmeric, lemon juice, and salt.
