This chickpea and tahini purée is so creamy and delicious that you can eat it as a spread, with raw vegetables as a dip, or even by the spoonful! This recipe spices up the traditional hummus by adding fresh turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties as well as its beautiful golden yellow color. The fresh cilantro balances the slightly bitter, gingery flavor from the turmeric.
