Immune-boosting homemade hummus recipe

The Vitl Nutrition Team / 19 Feb 2021

Guest recipe developer Eli Brecher brings us her quick and easy turmeric hummus. It's creamy, delicious and packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to help keep your immune system in check.


Hummus is one of my favourite foods and it's so quick and versatile - I love experimenting with different flavour variations. The addition of fresh turmeric adds so much delicious flavour, plus turmeric is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to help support your immune system.
