 Avocado Hummus  


  • ½ large ripe avocado
  • 1- 15½-ounce can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • ⅓ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • ¾ teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves, stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Using a food processor, combine avocado, chickpeas, tahini, lime juice, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, and cilantro; blend until smooth, about 1 minute. While processor is running, drizzle in 2 Tbsp. oil, then continue to process until hummus is smooth and creamy, about 1 minute longer. Taste and season with salt, if needed.
