Thai Peanut Hummus – Sweet, Spicy and Nutty

Home / Dips and Relishes / Thai Peanut Hummus – Sweet, Spicy and Nutty

I am a part of some food groups on Facebook that are simply amazing. The people in these groups are ever so encouraging and share some unusual recipes. One holiday I get up and find the recipe for Thai Peanut Hummus posted. Knowing my craze for Hummus, the admin also tagged me. Given the scheme of things, I HAD to make this creamy, sweet, spicy, nutty Thai Peanut Hummus.

I was actually intrigued by the ingredients and tastes that were incorporated into this dish.

I researched the recipe and found that the original recipe was from this wonderful site called Fooduzzi. Do visit the site; it has some great plant-based, gluten-free recipes.
