You won’t find a lot of avocado recipes here; that’s because I don’t eat that much avocado anymore…
This wasn’t always so; a long time ago, I ate so much avocado I got sick, then I couldn’t even look at an avocado without wanting to throw up.
The thing that gets me the most is avocado toast; it’s everywhere, looking delicious and tempting but I don’t want to get into them lest I overdo it.
I eat the odd avocado every once in a while, and this is one of my favourite ways to get my fix – in this quick and way avocado hummus. It’s great stuff indeed, fresh, delicious, simple and so easy, it comes together in under fifteen minutes.
The buttery wholesomeness of avocados brings a layer of creaminess, and a rich flavour to the hummus.

  3. 2 garlic cloves
  4. 1/3 cup olive oil, plus more for serving
  5. 2 - 3 tablespoons tahini
  6. 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  7. 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  8. 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional or to taste
  9. 3/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
DIRECTIONS
  1. Using a food processor, combine chickpeas, avocado, garlic and olive oil, pulse for a few seconds to combine ingredients
  2. Add tahini, lemon juice, cumin, pepper flakes and salt, and process until smooth and creamy
  3. Serve topped with more olive oil and a sprinkle of pepper flakes or sumac

    I couldn’t even imagine how much you ate that you got sick from it & of it, but I’m glad you don’t abandon it entirely because this hummus looks great plus it’s easy & quick. What more do I want, right? 🙂
