Yes, you read that correctly. And yes, creamy avocado hummus is as delicious as it sounds. Our friends at Ziploc® opened our eyes to this recipe—and it’s not an understatement to say that it’s one of the most amazing things that’s ever happened (it’s also a tasty way to get some of your daily fruit intake). So without further ado, this is what happens when hummus meets party-ready guacamole.
What You’ll Need:
1 (15 ounce) can of chickpeas, rinsed and dried
1 1/2 medium ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
3-4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 1⁄2 tablespoons of tahini
3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
1 clove of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
A handful of kale or spinach leaves
Table salt and pepper
Cumin, to taste
Garnish with chopped cilantro leaves
What to Do:
Step 1: In a food processor, pulse chickpeas with tahini, lime juice, and garlic. Slowly add olive oil until smooth consistency. Season with cumin, salt, and pepper to taste.
TIP: For even smoother hummus, remove the skins from the chickpeas after they’re rinsed and dried.
Step 2: Add avocados and pulse until smooth and creamy. For an even greener color, add a handful of kale or spinach leaves and puree until fully incorporated and smooth.
Step 3: To serve, top with a swirl of olive oil and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
TIP: Save the pit! Store unused avocado with pit in a Ziploc® brand sandwich bag to prevent browning for future use. Our new Ziploc® brand Easy Open Tabs are easy to grip and easy to open, making them perfect for your kitchen prep.
