How to Make Boiled Peanut Hummus
With Hampton Farms, you can put a fresh spin on everyone’s favorite healthy dip: Hummus! Swap out the chickpeas and use boiled peanuts for your base to enjoy a result that’s creamy, nutty and packed with protein.
Anyone who’s driven through the South has seen roadside stands hawking boiled peanuts, but these culinary gems can easily be made at home on the stove or in a crockpot. Since it takes the peanuts a few hours to absorb the liquid through their shells, this step can be done the day before you make the hummus.
To check if the peanuts are done, use a slotted spoon to pull one out of the pot and then remove its shell. Using a fork, press down lightly on the peanut. When the fork easily smashes the nut, you’ve achieved the desired consistency and can make the hummus recipe in a food processor.
Once the hummus is blended to a spreadable texture, serve it with your favorite dippers like bell peppers, celery, carrots, tomatoes, cucumber, cauliflower, crackers and pita bread. Refrigerate any leftover boiled peanuts, which can be reheated for a quick and satiating snack.
