thai peanut hummus

Another hummus! And what better flavor to pair it with than a spicy thai peanut curry? This idea sprouted from my investigation of the similarities between peanut butter and tahini. The result: their nutritional profiles are pretty similar with regards to fat content, sugar, and protein (depending on brand and quality). I already use the two interchangeably in granola and energy ball recipes, why not hummus too?   

thai peanut hummus
  • 1 can garbanzo beans (15.5 oz, drained and rinsed)
  • 2 tsp red curry paste (such as Mae Ploy)
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup water

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth! Garnish with cilantro and chopped peanuts. I like this hummus best with fresh crunchy veggies but crackers or pita chips make prime dippers as well.
