You know what happens when I get super busy? I up my food preparation in the kitchen, because there is nothing worse than being busy and not having any food in the fridge. Ya hear me?

This hummus makes the perfect snack with some chopped up veg, a lazy protein addition to salads and the ultimate accompaniment to a succulent piece of grass-fed steak. (Vegan friends please don’t hate me).

I’ve been living off this turmeric hummus for days.

If you are what you eat, then this week I’m a bright yellow chickpea.

Turmeric Hummus


  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1/2 small clove garlic, peeled & crushed
  • 4cm piece fresh turmeric, finely grated
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • olive oil
  • pinch of Himalayan sea salt


  1. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Pour the olive oil in a little at a time until the desired smooth consistency is achieved.
  2. Season to taste with salt.
  3. Serve this turmeric hummus on salads, with cut vegetables or on an antipasto plate.

Note:  If you make substitutions due to allergies or flavour preferences I cannot guarantee the results. Below are some substitute suggestions, but they have not been tested. If you follow them I would love to hear about your results in the comments below.


Chickpeas: I soak dried chickpeas overnight, rinse and then simmer them with salted water and some wakame seaweed until tender. But, you can use tinned chickpeas if you prefer. Just try and get organic and rinse them really well.

Fresh Turmeric: Substitute with 1 teaspoon ground turmeric.

Honey: I think it’s the honey that sets this hummus apart from all of the others. Leave it out if you’re avoiding sugar.
