Best Appetizers and Snacks of the Year 2016 – Drunken Thai Peanut Hummus

Drunken Thai Peanut Hummus | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

This week I’ll be joining in the Countdown to 2017, which is being hosted by Sarah of Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. We’re kicking off the week with 2016’s “Best Appetizers and Snacks.” I was truly holding my breath that the fan favorite of this year would be a deviled egg recipe, alas its was just not meant to be. Instead, the stats pointed to this lager beer and peanut-laced hummus dip which I made earlier this year. Perhaps it has something to do with it being absolutely amazing or maybe it’s just that this lovely appetizer photographed so well. I mean really y’all, don’t you just want to dive right in? Added bonus; this is the perfect appetizer or snack for your New Year’s Eve celebration.

Directions:

  1. Drain and rinse the beans. Remove and discard the skin from each bean, and then place each bean into a small bowl. When you are done removing the skins, sift through the chickpeas carefully to ensure that there are no skins remaining.
  2. Place the beans, peanut butter, Sriracha, olive oil, honey, ginger, salt, and pepper into a food processor and puree. Slowly add the beer 1-tablespoon at a time and puree again. Add more beer until you have achieved desired consistency.
  3. Garnish with additional Sriracha, chopped cilantro, chopped peanuts, sliced scallions, and thin slices of lime.

Suggestions:

  • If you are making this dip ahead of time, wait until right before serving to garnish it with the additional ingredients. Peanuts get soggy when refrigerated, and become quite nasty in my opinion.
  • Serve with carrot sticks, pita crisps, celery, or Naan.

Improvements:

  • Add fresh lime juice to the hummus.
  • Replace the salted peanuts with gourmet flavored peanuts.

    I can certainly see why this was a reader favorite Colleen.

    • Colleen Delawder

      Thanks Wendy! Happy Almost New Year!

  • Looks delicious! Did you know you can post multiple links to your recipes in these posts, not just one?

    • What I mean is … one post with multiple links to your favorite recipes. I’m really bad at being clear, sheepish grin.

    • Colleen Delawder

      Thanks Karen and yes, I do know that I could add more recipes, however, I’m going with the top one this year and making life even easier this holiday season! Happy Holidays!

  • Chimee Ahaiwe

    Not a fan of beans but this looks delicious 😋

    • Colleen Delawder

      My philosophy is to add so many extras that you don’t even taste the beans Chimee!

  • Amy CookingAdventures

    Yum! I love hummus!

    • Colleen Delawder

      Me too Amy!

  • Sid’s Sea Palm Cooking

    I’m totally into Hummus, and this one sounds like one I need to make and bring with me somewhere. I wonder what gathering is coming up soon? hmmmm

    • Colleen Delawder

      I think New Year’s is the perfect excuse to make this appetizer…or a snowy day…or just a plain ol’ Tuesday!

  • Lauren Everson

    Oh. My. Goodness. Yes that hummus photographed incredibly well. And it sounds amazing! I have definitely pinned it for some future snacking.

    • Colleen Delawder

      Yeah! I hope you get a chance to make it…it truly was delicious and pretty!
