Indian Spiced Hummus

A light curry flavor spices up this hummus. Make it as spicy as you'd like by adjusting the red pepper! Great with naan, veggies, and of course on toast.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 14 ounce can chickpeas or 1 3/4 cups chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons tahini
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon lime works too
  • 1 inch peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Crushed red pepper flakes to taste.


  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and combine until smooth, stopping and scraping down the sides as needed.
  • If the hummus is a little chunky (may depend on your blender), add a little water or more olive oil to thin it out. I ended up about about 3 Tablespoons of water.
  • Garnish with more turmeric, red pepper flakes and then erve with veggies, pita, naan, or slather on an avocado toast!
