I simply can’t get enough of this delicious Middle Eastern dip. Turmeric with vegetable sticks is my all time favourite snack. Although, the classical hummus is my favourite, I like playing around with different kinds of hummus such as beetroot hummus. This turmeric hummus is quite similar to the classical hummus, although it has a stronger flavour to it, because of the addition of turmeric, cumin and paprika. Turmeric is a spice much use in the Indian kitchen. Turmeric has such a nice vibrant colour to it and is both a powerful antioxidant and is anti- inflammatory.
A tin of cooked chickpeas ( approximately 400 gram)
6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 gloves of garlic ( crushed).
3/4 tsp turmeric
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
The juice of ½ a lemon
- Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
- Squeeze the lemon to collect the juice.
- Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until the desired consistency is achieved.
