You might say I'm a little obsessed with hummus. I love it and I love making different flavors of it. I had two very ripe avocados that needed to be used, pronto. So, here you have a protein and healthy fat dip. Delicious and filling. I just dipped carrots in it, but you could even thin it out with some broth and put it on some pasta I bet.
Yields 4 servings
A delicious, healthy, oil-free hummus with healthy fat from the avocado. Not only is this dip incredibly healthy, it is absolutely delicious!
10 minPrep Time
2 small ripe avocados, about a heaping cup
one 15 oz can garbanzo beans or chickpeas, drained and rinsed well
2 large garlic cloves (or to taste)
3-4 jalapeno slices from jar (depending on desired heat)
2 heaping tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice, add more to taste
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
few pieces of spinach or arugula to achieve desired color
Drain and rinse the beans well. Add the beans to a food processor and pulse until smooth, scraping the sides as necessary. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until very smooth. Let it run for several minutes as it will continue to get smoother. The chili powder changes the green color a bit, so that is why I added the arugula. It only takes a small amount. Taste and add any more seasonings if desired.
