Raw Vegan Probiotic Turmeric Hummus

December 8, 2017
Turmeric. Probiotic. Hummus. I know, I know, all you health and wellness peeps are on the edge of your seats right now! We all know turmeric is like a spice with angel wings... it is sooo powerful with it's anti-inflammatory AND anti-anxiety benefits. It's penetrating orange-yellow color is full of phytonutrients and can paint any dull dish into a sunny masterpiece! It only makes sense to combine this powerhouse spice with a vegan favorite: hummus. Can we agree that hummus is hands down the best protein-rich vegan snack, like ever? You can dip carrots, celery, crackers, fingers..etc in it for a delicious, super healthy treat. But wait...that's not even the best part about this recipe. This isn't your average hummus, my friends. This is probiotic hummus *winks*. Adding gut-friendly miso paste to this hummus elevates it to a whole new level. I suggest giving this recipe a try and experimenting with what pleases your taste buds. Some people like a less acidic hummus with less lemon and lime while others prefer extra tahini. So have fun with it and know you are doing your mind and body a favor with this tasty snack.
