Warm Turmeric Hummus With Caramelized Onions And Mushrooms

I added turmeric  in my hummus as I am always trying to get my 1 tbs per day , turmeric added to this warm hummus gives you a very subtle earthy taste.

 We had this last night for dinner with some toasted pita and it was perfect for a light and easy meal…. if you are doing a dip night  try serving it with some baba ganoush .
