Description

This avocado hummus is creamy and smooth and totally delicious. It’s super easy to make, highly nutritious and makes a perfect dip or spread!


Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice (Freshly Squeezed)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (Crushed)
  • 1 15oz (425g) Can Chickpeas (Drained)
  • 1/3 cup (80g) Tahini
  • 4 Tbsp Cold Water
  • 1 Medium Avocado (Peeled and Sliced)
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For Serving: 


Instructions

  1. Squeeze the fresh lemon juice into a bowl. Crush the garlic and add it to the lemon juice. Leave it to soak in the lemon juice for a few minutes.  
  2. Add the chickpeas, lemon juice and garlic mix, tahini and 2 Tbsp of the cold water to the food processor and process until chunky. 
  3. Add the avocado, salt, cumin, olive oil and remaining 2 Tbsp cold water and process until smooth. 
  4. Serve with a sprinkling of black sesame seeds, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and some fresh chopped parsley. Add pita breads or tortilla chips for dipping. 

Notes

*Soaking the fresh garlic in freshly squeezed lemon juice takes the bite out of the raw garlic while keeping all the flavor. 

*You can use more avocado if you want to. This really tastes like a perfect mix between guacamole and hummus, but if you’d like the flavor to be more guacamole than hummus then you are free to add more avocado. 

*The avocado must be perfectly ripe. It should give a little under your fingers when you squeeze it but it should be firm, not hard and not too soft. 

*Let the food processor run for a few minutes to get your hummus really smooth. 

*Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge and consumed within 2 days. It is best when fresh.
