Turmeric Hummus

I like hummus as much as I like nut butter! I eat it with vegetable crudities, roasted vegetables or gluten free crackers. So yummy!

It is also quick and simple to make. For a basic hummus you need chickpeas, tahini paste, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic. Making it at home is also less expensive and tastes so much better than buying it from the store.

I made this turmeric hummus a few weeks back and I can’t stop making it! There are many reasons why turmeric is good to eat every day; it is packed with antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory benefits and it helps delay ageing.
