Curry Hummus

Make your own flavorful Curry Hummus at home in only 5 minutes! Perfect for sandwiches, wraps, on bagels, or with veggie sticks.

Curry Hummus

Sometimes basic, plain hummus just doesn’t cut it. And for these times, I present to you: Curry Hummus!

Curry powder is one of the staple ingredients, along with the other ingredients needed for the hummus. So will never run out of a delicious spread to make.

Making the chickpea spread couldn’t be any easier. Just throw everything together in your food processor or blender and blend until smooth. And ready is your hummus – perfect for dipping (Easy Vegan Flatbread), for spreading on bread slices, in sandwiches or wraps, or whatever you have planned.

A note on the blender: In my opinion, a blender is the best way to make really creamy hummus. If you use a blender with a small container, it will be easier to make a smaller amount of hummus. I actually bought a small compact blender (like a NutriBullet or Ninja) for exactly this reason to make dips and sauces and love it! I can’t recommend it enough.

Health Tip: Legumes (chickpeas) and grains (bread; preferably whole wheat) are such a great combo. They are complementary proteins because when you combine them you will get all the essential amino acids.

How to make Curry Hummus

The ingredients

You will need:

  • canned chickpeas (if you want to use dried chickpeas and want to soak and cook them yourself, follow the first 2 steps of my hummus with dried chickpeas recipe)
  • tahini
  • lemon juice
  • salt
  • mild curry powder
  • water
  • chili oil (optional, but really good if you like your hummus to have a little bit of spice; alternatively you can add a sprinkle of chili powder)
  • optional toppings: olive oil and fresh cilantro (if you don’t like cilantro but want a green component on your hummus, you can use parsley instead)

The basic steps
