In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Start with 2 Tbs lemon juice - you can always add more later.
Blend everything in the food processor on high until hummus is smooth and fluffy - it might take a minute or two. Taste, and adjust seasonings as necessary. I added a little extra black pepper. Also, feel free to add the additional 1 Tbs of lemon juice if you want things to be nice and zingy.
Serve hummus in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and fresh cracked black pepper on top. It's delicious with carrots or pita chips!
The turmeric here is totally optional, but I love that it lends this hummus a sunny yellow color! Also, the hummus will keep in the fridge for about 4-5 days.
