This dish is dedicated to one of my FB page readers.

Thank you for inspiring me to make this combination !

Hummus with avocado recipe (2 servings)

300 grams (10.5 oz) COOKED chickpeas
100 grams (3.5 oz) avocado flesh (1 avocado)
2 Tbsp RAW tahini paste
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
a few Tbsp water – only if needed ! (I recommend using the water that the chickpeas were cooked in)
1-2 crushed garlic cloves (optional)
salt and black pepper to taste
cumin – optional

Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blend them in a bowl with a stick blender. The paste should be thick but if it’s too thick – you can add a little bit more water.
Serve with Avocado cubes, cooked chickpeas, chopped lemon and lots of extra virgin olive oil !

    This one is amazing looking. Does the avocado turn the Hummus brown, like avocado does on its own or mixed as guacamole? ~amy
