I really like hummus but I’ve never made any myself. It’s so simple, I’m not sure why I didn’t do this sooner! Hummus is a healthy snack, or a great appetizer for summer parties and barbecues. It’s also completely vegetarian! I chose to make hummus with avocado, I love the taste and texture that the avocado added to this recipe.
Avocado Cilantro Hummus
- 1 16oz can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
- 1 avocado
- cilantro -small bunch (optional)
- 1/2 lime
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Drain and rinse chickpeas. Juice the lime and slice up avocado.
Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add a little water if the consistency is thicker than you’d like (I left it a little chunkier, more like guacamole).
It really couldn’t be easier! I served up the hummus with flour tortillas that I had toasted in the oven and then cut into triangles. This hummus would also make a great dip for corn tortilla chips, pretzels, or veggies!
