turmeric + herb hummus
- 1 can chickpeas drained (keep the bean juice for other recipes!)
- 3-6 tbsp water or juice from chickpea can
- 3 tbsp lemon juice (one lemon)
- 2 tbsp tahini (ground sesame seeds)
- 1 tsp dried cilantro
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
Pour all ingredients into a blender or food processor, beginning with about 3 tbsp of the water. Blend until smooth. If the hummus is too thick, add more water. If too thin, add more chickpeas.
Pour into a container and use this delicious hummus on hummus, falafels, pita bread, or any other mediterranean foods you love!
