Turmeric hummus

Turmeric hummus that is so quick to make, you won’t believe it.

The first time I made homemade hummus was when my little boy (my youngest) was diagnosed with milk intolerance, this was just a few months before I was diagnosed with breast cancer which completely turned my life upside down. I wanted to give him something a little bit more exciting than dairy-free butter or cheese to have on his toast. My Maxim absolutely loved it and I was so proud that my 1-year-old was quite obsessed with hummus (then at least).

I have always used to buy hummus in the shop thinking it was a complicated dip/sauce to make…why was I so wrong? It honestly is the easiest thing to make in the world. It takes 2 minutes. You just put the ingredients in the food mixer/blender and voila it’s done. This hummus recipe is with turmeric for that extra anti-inflammatory and healing boost, perfect for cancer prevention or for us cancer fighters and thrivers. Have this turmeric hummus as a dip, as a spread, with a salad, with roast veggies – it really is lovely and brilliantly healthy.

Turmeric hummus ingredients

Grab your food processor and put all ingredients in and just blend until smooth. It’s so simple.

Turmeric hummus

Drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle some smoked paprika and serve. I hope you love turmeric hummus as much as I do.
