Yes, Turmeric Hummus – a very close cousin of the Golden Turmeric Milk.
If you are ever fighting with cold and think I really can’t have the Golden milk, turn up to the Golden Turmeric hummus which has all the anti inflammatory properties from Turmeric.

You have many many reasons to try them
**It is super healthy
and importantly with all the anti inflammatory properties.

Last week, when I was almost set to whip some sun dried tomato Hummus, I realised there wasn’t enough of sun dried for the hummus. SO whats next? I had a quick look around in my kitchen and immediately decided to jazz up my Hummus with the golden hues of Turmeric. Oh what fun I had, playing around, creating this classic hummus. Trust me it is absolutely worth it.

Our homegrown carrots from the patch were ready. Kids and me enjoyed harvesting from the roots and were absolutely delighted to have seen them right from creating a patch, seeds, daily feeding and tadaaa.. carrots!! Don’t they look gorgeous 🙂

What made our hummus so special was the accompaniments – Our carrots & some oatcakes. And yes, also meet my new companion in my kitchen – Vonchef 1000w FoodProcessor.

🌱Let me tell you, it is cleverly designed with the built-in accessories drawer underneath the main unit to store the blades and keeps the unused accessories out of the way when not in use. That it the very first thing that attracted me to this smart kitchen appliance.
🌱This Food Processor is designed to save hours of mundane work like chopping, slicing, grating and mixing.
🌱Matt Black look of the appliance matches the rest of the gadgetries in my kitchen.
🌱With a large 3.5l bowl and 1.8l blender jar, processing food is absolutely at ease.
🌱The processor also features a twin-speed operation with pulse option and incorporates an extra-large feed chute. There’s also a lid-locking system to avoid accidental spills and the dishwashersafe detachable parts make cleaning your food processor simple.
