This white bean hummus gets its golden hue from nutritious turmeric. Dunk your favorite veggies into this spicy, diet-friendly dip.

To make this zesty, creamy hummus, grab your blender or food processor and throw in a can of white beans, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, water and spices. We used turmeric, cumin and paprika to add some color and spice. Turmeric also brings many health benefits to the table (or in this case, bowl). Click here to learn more about this powerful spice >

Blend all of the ingredients until smooth, adding water as needed until it reaches your desired thickness. Pour your hummus into a bowl and top it with pumpkin seeds and a sprinkle of paprika. Serve with your favorite veggies, chips or crackers. We love eating it with baby carrots, bell pepper strips and sliced cucumbers. You can also put a tablespoon or two on your salad to act as a delicious dressing or use it as a topping in this Veggie Power Bowl recipe >
