- Part 1
Avocado Hummus Dip. The name speaks for itself. With those two ingredients together you really can’t go wrong. This a great new twist on the guacamole, or hummus. The mash-up of the two is great with crackers, pitas, chips or as a sandwich spread. The texture is creamy and the taste is amazing.
I really love hummus. Give me a spoon and 10 minutes- I will demolish a whole bowl. Chickpeas are a great protein packed legume that are a great source of fiber, vitamins and minerals. is it cheaper to make your own hummus, but you control the quality of ingredients that go into it. So, there are no weird preservatives or fillers in your dip.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 can of chickpeas drained
- 1 avocado
- Juice of one lemon
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- salt to taste
- sprinkle of cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 small tomato
- 1 tablespoon cilantro
- 1 tablespoon onion chopped small
- 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
What to do:
Puree all ingredients in part 1 in a food processor. While the food processor is still running, pour in slowly 1 tablespoon of EVOO.
In a small bowl, combine:
- 1/4 cup grape tomatoes , halved
- 1 TBS cilantro, fresh , chopped
- 1 TBS onion , chopped
- 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 tsp lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp salt
Spread hummus into a shallow serving bowl and garnish with tomato mixture. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
Avocado Hummus dip is great for any occasion. It makes for a super tasty spread on sandwiches or can be mixed into veggies dishes. My favorite of course is with pita chips
