Turmeric and Ginger Hummus [Vegan]






Cooking Time




For the Hummus:

  • 3/4 tin chickpeas the rest will be used for the topping
  • 2 tablespoon tahini
  • 1/2 squeezed lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 thumb of grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon water

For the Topping:

  • 1/4 can chickpeas rinsed and dried with a tissue
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • cracked pepper and salt to season
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon soya sauce


For the Topping:

  1. Add the chickpeas, cumin, pepper and salt in a bowl, and mix so that the seasoning coats the chickpeas.
  2. Heat a frying pan with olive oil on medium heat, add the red onion and sauté until slightly translucent then add the crushed garlic.
  3. Add the chickpeas and continue to stir on low heat for around 5 minutes until the chickpeas are almost golden.
  4. Add the soya sauce and allow it to caramelise, then take it off the heat. Leave to cool.

For the Hummus:

  1. Add all the hummus ingredients to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth, taste and add more lemon/ginger (for an extra kick), or water/olive oil for it to be more runny/creamy.
  3. Add the topping you made earlier.
  4. Enjoy with some sliced carrots/red pepper/celery etc, and try your best not to eat it all at once!


Feel free to add some stir-fried chickpeas to the top! This isn't an essential part, but it does take your hummus to a whole new level.
