Hummus With Peanut Butter

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

I know, I know! There are 183 hummus recipes! But none have peanut butter in them. I got this from a nutritionist who's (now grown) children would only eat hummus if she used peanut butter instead of tahini. I like it this way rather than the tahini way. Try it. You'll be pleasantly surprised! I put the olive oil right in the blender instead of drizzling on afterwards. Then I eat it with Kashi TLC crackers right out of the container.

Wow! This was my first time making hummus and I was specifically looking for a recipe that I actually had the ingredients in my kitchen. The only thing I didn't have was fresh parsley and I didn't have quite enough olive oil but this was still fabulous. Because I love spicy food and was craving some heat... I doubled the garlic and added a few jalepenos. It was awesome!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Being a family on a tight budget this is definately a keeper and is a new favorite! :-)
