This Thai Peanut Hummus dip was created with the Peanut Bureau and will become your favourite hummus recipe. It’s sweet, tangy, nutty and spicy and is totally gluten free, vegan and super healthy.
I’ve always been a hummus lover. I slather it on chicken breasts, pizza, quesadillas and in burgers. But hummus doesn’t always have to mean the classic chickpeas + tahini + lemon + garlic + oil combination. Why not shake things up with some exotic flavours? That was the inspiration for this Thai Peanut Hummus Dip.
How to Make Thai Peanut Hummus Dip
I love Thai flavours. I actually recently shared a recipe for amazing chicken satay that will literally blow your mind. So when I started thinking about making Thai Peanut Hummus dip, my mouth automatically started watering.
This recipe starts with your usual hummus base- chickpeas, but instead of tahini (which is essentially sesame butter), I use my go-to breakfast staple; natural peanut butter. I love the nutty sweetness and body it gives this dip, especially with a squirt of spicy sriracha, a little sweet coconut sugar, and the zing of lime juice in there.
This Thai Peanut Hummus dip is a great healthy snack that’s perfect for bringing to summer cookouts, BBQs or potlucks. I love that peanuts provide a satisfying trio of protein, fibre and healthy fats to keep me fuller longer and that this recipe is totally vegan, dairy free and gluten free. In other words, it’s ideal for a crowd with multiple dietary restrictions.
