Hummus is a great healthy snack — in moderation, of course.
The best part is that it’s so easy to make 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 hummus recipe.
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 this hummus with fresh veggies, whole-grain pita bread, or use it as a spread in sandwiches and wraps.
