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!

- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

- Combine beans, avocado, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper, olive oil, and 3 tablespoons of reserved liquid in a blender or food processor.

- 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.
