Coconut, curry, and chickpeas come together to create an unforgettable Thai Coconut Curry Hummus that will leave you craving the flavor for days after trying it!
I really enjoy hummus. In fact, it’s the number one thing I miss from my recent Israel trip. It was a fun trip and the food was excellent that I miss every bit of it already especially hummus. It’s one of my favorite snacks to have on hand since hummus is a pretty great snack. I love to dip a few crunchy veggies in hummus in the afternoon to tide me over. It also goes well as a first course; there are so many ways to serve it that you can make it a fun appetizer for almost any entree. With pita, crackers, or raw veggies are a few common favorites. I have also paired it with non-traditional bread and enjoyed every bite!
Now and then I like exploring new flavors to get a little inspiration. I was in Whole Foods when I spotted this fun Thai Coconut Curry Hummus. Hummus + Thai food flavors – isn’t it amazing? I loved the unique flavor combination of the ingredients and immediately thought, this is a must try to make at home!
You might find similar recipes using coconut milk; however, this one does not require coconut milk, red curry, or yellow curry paste. My version of Thai Coconut Curry Hummus is a combination of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), tahini, curry powder, olive oil, sea salt, garlic, and kaffir lime leaves (or lime juice). That’s pretty much it. Blend everything in a food processor and once seasoned you can dig right in.
Hummus is a great source of protein, healthy fats, and calcium. You can spread it on your favorite sandwich instead of mayonnaise or mustard.
This Thai version Hummus is so good and the combination of coconut and curry, with a hint of lime, is nothing short of amazing. Hummus is packed with protein and fiber thanks to those tasty little chickpeas, so it is a snack you can feel good about having when you need a pick me up.
This Thai twist on a Mediterranean classic has the irresistible array of tangy flavors that seem like the recipe could be complicated to recreate. But, you will find that within moments you can have your hummus and eat it too while satisfying a craving for traditional Thai flavors.
