Hummus is a great healthy thing to have in the fridge. You can add it to dishes, or dip your snacks in it — whether that be tortilla chips, carrots, or pita bread. Here’s a little secret: It’s even better when you add turmeric!
Store-bought hummus can be good, depending on the brand. But sometimes they’re filled with a lot of oils and preservatives.
Nothing beats homemade hummus.
That’s why we decided to share this healthy turmeric hummus recipe with you!
Simple Turmeric Hummus
Good hummus should be light, fluffy, and silky. It can be served with a snack or with a meal.
What you’ll need:
Ingredients for 6 servings:
2 cups chickpeas
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon Purality Health’s Micelle Liposomal Turmeric
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons water (optional)
What you’ll need to do:
Place the chickpeas in a food processor with the salt, cumin, Purality Health’s Micelle Liposomal Turmeric, garlic, and tahini. Then turn on the food processor.
With the food processor running, slowly pour in the lemon juice and olive oil.
Let the processor run until the mixture is smooth. For an extra light hummus, add the two tablespoons of ice-cold water and process until smooth and blended.
Serve with your choice of dipping chips or veggies.
To make the hummus even smoother, remove the skin from the chickpeas.
To do this, mix the chickpeas with baking soda, heat in the microwave or on a skillet for 2-3 minutes, then rinse them in a bowl while agitating the chickpeas with your hands. The skins should slide right off. This extra effort makes for the best hummus!
