I love making a big batch of hummus on a Sunday to use in meals throughout the week. It's the most perfect topping for any salad and great as a snack with some chopped up veggies. At the moment I'm loving this turmeric version and I hope you do too! The addition of sesame oil is the secret to the flavour in this recipe - it really is amazing. And if you can't find fresh turmeric, feel free to substitute an extra 1/2 tsp of the dried stuff. This hummus is absolutely divine served with my Curried Buckwheat and Charred Broccoli Salad.


Chickpeas

1 cup of cooked chickpeas contains 13 grams of dietary fibre (about 1/3 of the recommended daily intake for the average adult) 26% of the RDI for iron and 70% of the RDI for folate, a particularly important nutrient during pregnancy due to its role in reducing the risk of having a baby with neural tube defects.

This hummus is...

  • Rich and creamy, 
  • A good source of fibre, 
  • Packed with punchy sesame flavour, 
  • ... and supercharged with the healing powers of turmeric.
