Golden Turmeric Hummus

GOLDEN Turmeric Hummus - an easy and healthy vegan hummus that is great as a snack!

If you don’t have turmeric or nutmeg on hand, you can use 3/4 teaspoon of curry powder instead. This hummus develops even more flavor the next day!


  • 15.5 ounce (440g) can of chickpeas, drained with liquid reserved*
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons reserved liquid from chickpeas
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 large clove of garlic


  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl to blend those few pesky chickpeas that get stuck to the sides. If you want a lighter hummus, add another tablespoon or two of reserved liquid from the chickpeas.
  2. Serve with your favorite vegetables and crackers!
