80--- Coconut Curry Hummus

This is actually a copycat recipe.

I had hummus from this company and it was SO delicious.

And the flavor was really easy to replicate.

For less moolah.

There's nothing wrong with being a little thrifty now and then.

Coconut Curry Hummus
Makes ~ 2 cups

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 clove garlic, minced
4 oz unsweetened canned coconut milk
2 Tbsp tahini
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
4 tsp yellow curry powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
Dash crushed red pepper

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until a smooth puree is formed.  For a thinner consistency, add 2-3 Tbsp water.

*Note: due to the saturated nature of coconut milk, this hummus does "set up" a bit when refrigerated.  No worries! Just stir prior to serving.

Serve with crudites or pita chips.

  1. Hi Lindsay!
    I too fell in love with that same coconut curry hummus. But not the price since I ate the whole container within a couple sittings. :/ (need the calories though - I'm kind of scrawny)
    Anyway, I just made your recipe and though it is still sitting in the food processor, it tastes really great. I made a few modifications - powdered garlic, more tahini, some expeller pressed olive oil. I'm also thinking about adding some diced jalapeños.
    THANK YOU for posting this recipe and I can't wait to see what else is on your website. I'm up in the Flathead, by the way!

  2. I will try this soon, looks delicious! thanks
