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.
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.
