Avocado Hummus

When I stumbled across this recipe on Annie Bakes I knew I had to try it. Hummus? Avocado? Yes, please. This recipe did not disappoint. Both Casey and I loved it so much that I made it twice, the second time for a FIF night at my house.

Usually, hummus recipes call for chilling them prior to serving to let the flavors blend but this one did not. I served it right away at room temperature and it was delicious! I also placed one of the avocado pits at the bottom of the dish which I always do when serving guacamole. It helps prevent the avocados from turning brown. I had some leftover that I kept in a Tupperware container with one of the pits. The next day it still looked pretty good, although it didn't taste as nice cold as it did at room temp. This is probably best when it will be eaten all at one time.


Ingredients:
1 can chickpeas, drained
2 avocados, sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
2-3 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup water
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika

Directions:
Place the first five ingredients in a food processor (chickpeas, avocados, lemon juice, garlic, and water). Pulse until blended. Taste and add salt and pepper to your liking, pulse to combine. Begin drizzling in the olive oil until the hummus gets to the right consistency, it should be nice and creamy. Blend until smooth and serve topped with paprika and garnish with a sprig of cilantro (optional) and a drizzle of avocado oil (optional). Serve with pita chips.

Recipe slightly adapted from Annie Bakes.

The little tip about using the pit in the bottom of the bowl was worth the price of admission. Thanks for that. Now I have a use for it without feeling obligated to stick toothpicks in it and try to get it to sprout. I'm trying the dip today. Also trying the traditional using peanut butter instead of tahini.

@Connie I love that tip, too! It really works! I haven't heard of using peanut butter instead of tahini before, I will have to try that some time!

Thank you for sharing. Am going to make this "paleo" friendly by subbing in some other ingredients.

It is an urban myth that putting the Avocado stone in your dip or guacamole will keep it from browning. The only part that won't go brown is the part covered from the air by the stone! Put your trust in plastic wrap instead.
