Pumpkin Pie Hummus

It feels like Thanksgiving was just yesterday. I could still taste our delicious Thanksgiving dinner. I was stuffed, but somehow I could eat more.

Now, we wait for several more “Food Overeating” rounds. Seriously, holidays are all about giving, sharing and FOOOOOD! But, I am not complaining…

So, let’s talk about this beautiful, sweet and delicious hummus. I think hummus is becoming more and more trendy.

If you didn’t notice, big brands are making all types of flavors these days, and I really like every hummus taste; sweet, savory, spicy, etc.

I made this hummus just before Thanksgiving, and it was so good that I made it several times. The first time when I made it, my kids, niece, as well as Nebs, didn’t even want to look at it. They’d say: “you are crazy

However, when they finally dipped in the hummus sweet graham cracker, oh boy, I couldn’t stop them.

My hummus bowl was literally “licked” clean. You wouldn’t believe it, but they started adding whipped cream as a topping like you would on a pumpkin pie. So, yes, I got two thumbs up from my fam.

The taste is unique but somewhat familiar. When the flavors melt in your mouth, it becomes even more familiar, as it tastes almost like pumpkin pie.

This could be totally done with roasted or boiled sweet potatoes. Actually, I really like them either way.

Maybe a bit more with roasted sweet potatoes, because I LOVE sweet potatoes. However, if you like pumpkin pie, I am sure that you will love this.

Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce

Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce

I began to write this post in the middle of the week, and, of course, got distracted.

I got distracted by making videos, testing recipes, and editing. Uploading a video took literally forever. It was definitely time for a simple lunch, and I had a pretty delicous one; Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce with Shrimps, Rice and Asparagus.

There is no mystery that I love Thai cuisine. The mix of different and unique flavors has been always just amazingly delicious and aromatic to me.

Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce

This Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce is quite different, and with a sweet side rather than on a spicy. In combination with shrimps and roasted asparagus, this dipping sauce was undoubtedly perfect.

Of course, you can use chicken or even beef, but since I had these fresh shrimps I thought it would be great. The taste of the Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce is absolutely amazing. It is sweet, and a bit citrusy, because I used lime.

Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce

Thai Red curry paste gave a unique and unforgettable flavor, too. The thick constituency and texture melt like a bar of chocolate in your mouth.

Now, you can serve it with other vegetables or even noodles if you desire. I just made it as simple as possible. This is dipping sauce so you can seriously dip any poultry or meat. I might make a video on this soon.

Ingredients

  • 6 Fl Oz Premium Coconut Milk about 1/2 can premium coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp. Thai Red Curry Paste
  • 2/3 cup Creamy Peanut Butter unsweetened/(Organic)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 Fl oz Lime Juice, 1/8 cup freshly squeezed
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup Water

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients into a sauce-pan and bring everything to boil over medium heat. Keep mixing continuously.
  2. Turn down the heat and allow the sauce to simmer for about 4-5 minutes at the lowest temperature.

  3. Take it off the burner, and let the sauce cool down to room temperature before serving.

Recipe Notes

Place Peanut dipping sauce in a container with a fitted lid in the fridge for up to 10 days. This will create a sauce to thicken up, of course. What you will need to do is dilute it out with a small bit of water to desired consistency over low heat before serving. When I serve this meal, I serve it with lime and freshly picked Thai basil. I squeezed lime juice all over my food. It just gives an even better taste.

  • Shrimp: Marinate shrimp for about 15 minutes in the juice of 1/2 of lime, 1 tbsp. of soy sauce, 2 garlic cloves -minced and 1 tsp. of ginger. Grill, saute or bake shrimp for 5 minutes on each side. I like shrimp when I saute them.
  • Asparagus: Season it with salt, pepper and to go with the rest of the meal squeeze a bit of lime and drizzle with oil. Roast for 15-20 minutes. OR you can boil it for 10 minutes in salted water, then squeeze lime juice when it’s done.
  • Rice in the pot: Wash rice 2-3 times, and soak for 10 minutes, drain the water out and refill the pot again -Usually, I measured water by going about the index finger thick (about 1/2-1 inch) above the rice. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, mix, turn the heat on high, cover the pot. As soon as the water boil, take the lid off, mix the rice, then turn the heat to simmer, put the lid back on. Let the rice simmer for 7 minutes – keep the lid on. Turn the heat off, keep the pot on the “turned off” stove burner and steam for 7 more minutes, keep the lid ON the pot. I like rice the best made that way. After steaming, I add a drizzle of oil, mix it and serve.
