Avocado Hummus

I love avocados. I love hummus. I just had to throw the two together. The result was a smoother hummus texture with a hint of an avocado flavor. It was a fun way to use up extra avocado (is that a thing?) while giving hummus a nutritional boost. As if hummus weren’t nutritional enough on its own!

Total Time: 30 minutes
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Yields: 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 15 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained, liquid reserved
  • 1 avocado, peeled and seed removed
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • paprika

Instructions

  1. Combine beans, avocado, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper, olive oil, and 3 tablespoons of reserved liquid in a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. If a thinner consistency is desired, add 1-2 tablespoons of reserved liquid and blend. Repeat until desired consistency achieved.
  4. Spread hummus on serving dish. Sprinkle with paprika. Serve with veggies and pita bread.

Notes

  • Vegetarian and vegan
  • If you wish to eliminate the oil, use reserved liquid in its place. This will lower the calories and result in a healthier hummus.
  • If you use avocados frequently, consider investing in an avocado slicer. It will make your life a bit easier.
