  1. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant and lightly browned, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour mixture into a ramekin or small bowl and cool.
  2. Blend cooled garlic-oil mixture, garbanzo beans, lime juice, peanut butter, coconut milk, chili sauce, lemon grass, basil, ginger, curry paste, jalapeno pepper, salt, cayenne pepper, and chili powder together in a blender until smooth.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Any of the ingredients can go from half to double what's shown based on your taste. Want it creamier? Double the coconut milk. Less sweet? Halve the sweet pepper sauce.
  • Water, lime juice, or coconut milk can be added to loosen it up if it gets thick.
  • Because of the coconut oil and milk, this will become a rather solid hummus when refrigerated. Plan ahead for serving so that it may warm and become spreadable/dip-able.

I made this recipe for a Ladies' event at church. It was a hit!!! Everyone wanted the recipe. :) I left out the PB as some cannot eat it. The hummus still came out wonderful. No one in the...

Extraordinary! Love the depth of flavor! I followed the recipe to the letter and it was fantastic. Wouldn't alter a thing.

Worth the trouble to find all the ingredients. Exotic flavor with a sweet pop combine with the deep chickpea flavor to create an amazingly new combo.

Excellent! I added tahini that I made from one of your recipes and garnished it with roasted garlic and olive oil. It was creamy and fresh.

Liked it. Was a little too sweet for me so I'd lessen the sweet chili sauce next time. Bell peppers were my favorite dipper. Other veggies and pita chips were good too.
