Avocado Hummus

Ingredients

  • 1 420g (15oz) can of chickpeas or 125g (4.4oz) if using dried
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of tahini paste
  • 3-4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • ½ teaspoon of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon of crushed black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of cumin

Preparation

Step 1

If you are using the canned chickpeas, just remove them from the can and drain them. If you are using dried chickpeas, cook them around 40 minutes, drain them and reserve a bit of cooking water which you might need later to dilute the hummus.

Step 2

Peel the avocados. Add chickpeas, avocados and all the other ingredients to the food processor and blend them until smooth and creamy. If you used the boiled chickpeas add a few spoons of cooking water to thin the hummus as desired.

Step 3

Serve the avocado hummus to the bowl and drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on top. Enjoy it as a dip with pita bread or tortilla chips or as a delicious spread on a toast.
