Thai Hummus with Peanuts

Hummus is a great healthy snack to fuel you through your day. And while you can grab a pre-made container at the store, it’s easy to make your own at home. Homemade hummus is often not only a healthier and cheaper alternative, but you can also get creative and mix up unique flavors like this recipe for Thai Hummus with Peanuts.

This recipe will take your snacking to a whole other level. The Thai-inspired flavorings of peanut butter, hot sauce, ginger, and lime juice transform the chickpea base and if you want to make your hummus look extra fancy (with minimal effort), sprinkle some extra toppings on top. Serve the hummus with fresh veggies, whole grain pita bread, or use it as a substitute for mayo in sandwiches and wraps.
