AVOCADO HUMMUS RECIPE

Great recipe after I added garlic, salt & tahini instead of plain sesame seeds. To extend the shelf life, I leave adding the avocado until just before serving. This way I can make it a day ahead so the flavours can blend.

Oh my gosh! I love this stuff! !! I substituted the rosemary with cilantro, and added the salt and garlic like another cook suggested and it is SO good!! Kind of has a guacamole + hummus taste!


AVOCADO HUMMUS RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

1 (15 oz) can chick peas, well drained
2 medium ripe avocados, cored and peeled (13 oz before cored and peeled)
3 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for serving if desired
1 1/2 Tbsp tahini
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 clove garlic, peeled
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp cumin
1 – 2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro leaves, for topping
Red pepper flakes, for topping

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Pulse chick peas, olive oil, tahini, lime juice, and garlic in a food processor until smooth, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste (I did a scant 1/2 tsp salt and about 1/8 tsp pepper), add cumin and avocados and pulse mixture until smooth and creamy, about 1 – 2 minutes longer.
  • Serve topped with more olive oil if desired and sprinkle with cilantro and red pepper flakes. Serve with pita chips or tortilla chips.
