Tom Yam Hummus

Hummus with traditional Thai flavors? Why not!

This recipe was inspired by my recent trips to Thailand, where the combination of chilies, lime juice, garlic, tomatoes and basil form the basis for many Thai dishes, including the famous sweet, spicy and sour Tom Yam soup. 

This low-fat hummus packs a spicy punch! But it is full of intense flavor and utterly delicious. Try it!

10 min
  1. 2 cans of chickpeas (one drained, one with liquid) OR 3 cups of cooked chickpeas and 1 cup of liquid the chickpeas were cooked in.
  2. ¼ cup sesame seeds
  3. 6 tbsps fresh lime juice
  4. 6 dried bird’s eye chilies
  5. 1 tsp thai basil, dried, or 1.5 tbsps fresh
  6. 1 tsp cumin
  7. 2 cloves garlic
  8. 2 tsps chopped sundried tomatoes (dry packed, if not soft soak in warm water for 10 minutes to soften)
  1. Place all ingredients in blender or food processor and blend or process on high until smooth.
  1. Feel free to adjust the seasonings to taste. I used dried chilies, but fresh ones would work too. Regardless of your choice, you may want to add just one-two chilies at a time until you get the level of spiciness you desire.
