  1. Preheat the oven to 475°F (250°C).
  2. Cut the lemon in half crosswise and place them cut-side up on a piece of foil or parchment paper. Bake on the middle rack for about 10 minutes, until tender and slightly golden. Allow cooling before extracting the juice. Roasting the lemons is an optional step. Alternatively, squeeze in fresh lemon juice.
  3. Add the roasted lemon juice, along with all the remaining ingredients, except for the chickpeas, to a food processor and blend on high until well combined, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  4. Then add the chickpeas and blend again until creamy, ideally for 3 - 4 minutes. The longer it blends, the smoother the consistency becomes.
  5. Plate, garnish, serve with crackers, cut-up vegetables, or enjoy in a wrap or sandwich.

the best hummus i have ever made!!!! soooo yummy! thank you for the recipe and congrats on the engagement!
For anyone unsure how to "cook chickpeas"- I boiled 1 cup dried chickpeas in 2/3 tsp baking soda and alot of water. I boiled it for an hour and half until very soft/mushy :)

Such a big compliment, Arya! Thanks for the insight as well 😊

Just made this and it is absolutely delicious! I added a small handful of baby spinach in there too because why not.
Will definitely be making again :)

Mmm baby spinach is a wonderful idea! Thank you, Alice ☺️

This was okay. Lovely color, but I would recommend checking out her other hummus recipes.

I made this hummus on the weekend and had it in my wraps and on my roasted veggie bowls and it was really nice! It's a nice alternative to the traditional hummus recipe I keep making. Thanks!

Thank sounds so yummy, Miriam! So happy you enjoyed the hummus ✨

This hummus is interesting and spicy (not hot, but aromatic!) in a good way. I was actually more sceptical about the lemon flavour, which became too bittersweet for me, than the turmeric. I used cumin instead of curry powder to maintain a classic hummus flavour in the background

Thank you for sharing, Louise! Using cumin sounds delicious. To help with the bitter flavour in the future, you could try experimenting with a bit of sugar or adding more salt 🙂

Louise Magnusson - April 1, 2021, 10:05 p.m.

Thank you for the tip!! Extra salt sounds like a good option, especially when the canned chickpeas that I use don’t contain added salt
