A delicious hommus dip that’s zingy and fresh with Thai-inspired flavours of lime, chilli and coriander.

It’s no secret that I’m somewhat addicted to the flavourful combination of chilli and lime. And to be honest, why wouldn’t I be? It’s perfect.

So when I came across a Thai Chilli and Lime Hommus at Orange Grove markets, I bought a couple of tubs, and within a couple of days they were both gone. Scraping the last bits out of the tub was extremely frustrating. In need of a further dip fix, I rummaged through the pantry and found a can of chickpeas. Great! Now I could make my own, and it only took minutes.

Unlike traditional hommus, this version is zingy and fresh, bursting with the citrusy flavours of lime juice and freshly chopped coriander.

Thai Chilli and Lime Hommus
Recipe type: Dip, Hommus, Thai
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
I like a little spice so I added extra chilli powder to the mix, but if you have more sensistive taste buds, just stick with deseeded red long chilli. It will be just right.
For the Hommus:
  • 1 (440g) can chickpeas, liquid reserved
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 4 tbsp peanut oil
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 2 sprigs fresh coriander, chopped finely
  • 1 red long chilli, de-seeded and chopped finely
To make the Chilli and Lime Hommus:
  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and process with a stick blender until all chickpeas have been pureed.
  2. Add reserved chickpea liquid to the dip for a more runny consistency.
To serve:
  1. Serve with crackers or vegetable sticks.
To store: place in the fridge in an airtight container, store for upto 4 days.

    Well may you scorn – I use hommus regularly instead of butter, margarine [ugh!] or any other spread [well, I do love plain avocado!]. This one I really like and will really try 🙂 ! Thanks!

  5. What an easy to whip up dish! Hommus never lasts long in our household, and I do make it. Love the flavours you have used, sounds delicious.

    This sounds fantastic, Martyna! I love chili and lime together, too – so I can’t wait to try it.

    I love hummus but have never made it on my own and limes and chili are permanently in my fridge (I love both), so I’m sure I would love this hot and tangy version.

  9. What a great change from the every day hummus recipes we see.. it must be so fresh with the addition of lime!

  10. TasteFood says:
