Spice up your hummus recipe with turmeric and roasted garlic. A simple vegan and high protein dip to eat all week! 

Turmeric is all the rage lately. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s an ancient spice used in many Asian dishes that has some anti-inflammatory properties (If you want to know more about inflammation, check out my latest video). Since many of my readers are super active, you’ll be interested to know that turmeric has the power to ease inflammation after a tough work-out. Plus, I love the golden color that turmeric adds to things, and it has a bit of a peppery flavor. Recipe for Roasted Garlic and Turmeric Hummus. #vegan #healthyside #protein #appetizer #hummus #turmeric #antiinflammatory

If you’ve been following along with this blog for a while, you know I like to keep my recipes simple and yummy. Nothing can be simpler than this homemade hummus, with a twist. It’s got a subtle taste of roasted garlic and turmeric, both of which enhance the flavor in this protein-packed condiment. I could go into a whole monologue about turmeric, but I’ve actually written a few articles on the topic elsewhere. So I’ll just drop the links and get right to the recipe!
