Yummus (Thai Flavored Hummus)

Hummus is a great light meal and so versatile. There are so many flavor permutations you are limited only by your imagination. This one is popular  around our household and it utilizes peanuts instead of the traditional tahini (sesame seed butter). Hummus is high in iron and vitamin C, and also has significant amounts of folate and vitamin B6. The chickpeas make it a good source of protein and dietary fiber and when combined with a grain provides complete protein. PRINT Yummus Recipe from MS Word
