Boiled Peanuts Hummus




Peanuts are packed with vitamins and nutrients. They are a good source of heart healthy mono saturated fat. Boiled peanuts are loaded with antioxidants as they absorb antioxidants from the shell while they are boiled. They are high in fiber so you feel full having just a handful.




Boiled Peanut Hummus is a wonderful recipe combining different flavors including olive oil and sesame oil which make this recipe a perfect dip for the chips. They taste so delicious that its tough to find the difference from the real chickpea hummus. Serve them with homemade pita chips or crackers. We can also use them as a spread on toast, bagel or for mediterranean sandwiches.
