There’s hummus and then there’s golden hummus. This turmeric-infused hummus is spiced with a little bit of cumin and topped with curry-spiced roasted chickpeas. Not only do they add flavor to the dish, they also add a nice crunch. Pair this hummus with roasted carrots, crackers or raw vegetables and you got yourself the perfect snack or a quick healthy lunch.
