I thought of the snacks my family enjoys, then added a twist. An avocado twist. This avocado hummus recipe is easy to prepare and has a great flavor! It’s perfect for Super Bowl parties, potluck dinners and everyday snacking!
To begin, you will need:
1 16 oz can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 medium avocado
1/4 cup liquid from can of chickpeas
3-4 tablespoons lemon or lime juice (depending on taste)
tiny amount of lemon or lime zest
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Drain chickpeas and reserve liquid from can. Combine remaining ingredients in blender or food processor. Adding 1/4 cup of liquid from chickpeas. Blend on low for about 4 minutes until thoroughly mixed and smooth. (You may have to scrape the bowl halfway through blending.)
Place the mixture in a serving bowl, and create a shallow well in the center of the hummus. Add a small amount (1-2 tablespoons) of olive oil in the well. I like to add more crushed garlic to the well, too.
