Garlic Turmeric Hummus

An anti-inflammatory snack for dipping or spreading.

Garlic Turmeric Hummus

I designed this high-protein hummus specifically for fighting inflammation and disease. Garlic has been shown to help lower inflammation, boost immune functioning and kill cancer cells (it is most potent when eaten raw!). Turmeric, a well-researched spice, is responsible for the bright yellow color. It has been shown to help prevent diabetes and treat depression (one study demonstrated turmeric is as effective as Prozac). Leave a comment letting me know how you cook with garlic or turmeric!

How to:

  1. Optional: Roast whole garlic bulbs in oven for 30 min at 400°F (see directions). Alternatively, if your garlic is already peeled then throw the peeled cloves in the oven. This method will only take 15-20 min.
  2. Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth (add water to help with blending and scrape down sides when food processor gets stuck).
  3. Sprinkle with herb of choice and serve.

  13. Hi Dylan, I just stumbled on your blog, and WOW, I love it! Wonderful pics, recipes, and I love the plant based and evidence based. Especially the ‘evidence based’ part – that part seems a little lacking in a lot of the people giving health advice online. This post in particular caught my eye, looks SO yummy!!!
