guacamole hummus.

February 4, 2014 § 2 Comments

I have a simple dip to share with you today: guacamole hummus!  It is fresh, healthy, and pairs as well with veggies as it does pita chips or crackers.  It also really takes just a few moments to prepare, so long as you have a food processor.

I could (and do) eat this by the spoonful on its own.   It’s tangy and savory–my favorite!

Guacamole Hummus

Recipe from Shutterbean

What you need:

  • 3 cups fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 15oz. can chickpeas, rinsed & drained
  • 1 ripe avocado, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • sea salt and black pepper

What to do:

In a food processor, combine the cilantro leaves and garlic clove.  Process until finely chopped, then add the rinsed and drained chickpeas and chopped avocado.  Keep processing!  Drizzle in a stream of olive oil into the mixture as it processes, then add the lemon juice.  Keep processing until smooth.  Season with an additional squeeze of lemon juice and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper to taste.  Garnish with additional cilantro, if you like.

In my world, this makes about 2 servings—so if making for an appetizer for a party, you may want to double or triple this recipe.

P.S. Thank you to Kate for the lovely new bowl!
