No Bean Turmeric Keto Hummus:
Keto Hummus is a great recipe that is well-tolerated by my clients with autoimmune and chronic inflammatory conditions that are following our AutoImmune Elimination program. In addition, beans and legumes are starchy and provide too many carbs to be used on a ketogenic diet. So if you are looking to go keto, this is a fantastic alternative to a legume based hummus you may be used too!
I add in the turmeric and also enjoy lemon and apple cider vinegar in this to make it even more anti-inflammatory! The turmeric is what makes this recipe look yellow and the lemon and ACV provide a fantastic flavor as well.

Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a fantastic legume-free hummus. Legumes contain phytic acids and lectins that are anti-nutrients in that they take nutrients from the body. Phytic acids, in particular, leach the body of major minerals such as zinc, copper, calcium and magnesium. Soaking and sprouting these legumes is helpful but the starchy carbohydrates in the legumes can still be challenging on our blood sugar and gut microflora.
Personally, I function best without legumes while others do well with a small to moderate amount. I really don’t miss the beans much except for a good hummus! This recipe allows me to enjoy the great taste of a quality hummus without the legumes. I love to add in the optional ingredients listed in order to make this tangy and creamy and use it as a vehicle to get more turmeric into my system!
This recipe is ideal for the ketogenic diet, paleo diet and anti-inflammatory nutrition plan. Try it out today and let us know how it came out for you in the comments section below! Enjoy!
