Ingredients

  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can chickpeas
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika, plus more for topping
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup cold water, to thin
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Za'atar, for topping
  • Chef notes

    Homemade hummus is incredibly easy to make so I decided to take a traditional recipe and infuse it with one of my favorite spices: turmeric. This turmeric hummus is zesty, flavorful and will be a welcome addition to any picnic party spread. 

     

    Technique tip: Don't drain the chickpeas. The aquafaba (liquid in the can) creates a light airiness to the hummus.

    Preparation

    1.

    In a food processor or high-speed blender, combine the chickpeas, turmeric, paprika, cumin, tahini, lemon juice and garlic; blend.

    2.

    Add cold water, tablespoon by tablespoon, and blend. Continue to blend until hummus reaches your desired consistency. Feel free to add more water if you like a thinner consistency.

    3.

    Blend three to four more times until hummus is extremely velvety smooth. Season with salt to taste.

    4.

    Add hummus to a serving dish and top with a generous drizzle of olive oil, a dash of paprika and a sprinkling of za'atar.
