The best hummus ever – Avocado hummus recipe February 6, 2006

Filed under: Food,Recipes,Vegetarian — amygeekgrl @ 10:11 pm

This delicious recipe came my way from Harmonia’s blog.

I took some pictures of this after I made it last week, but they have disappeared on my computer for the moment. Grrr. I’ll post one if I can round them up.

Avocado Hummus
(from Harmonia with my clarifications/amounts)

1 can of chickpeas
1 avocado
5 T tahini
3 T olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon (or more to taste)
3/4 C water
4 or 5 cloves of garlic
salt/pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Enjoy! 🙂

    Oh my. This sound delicous. I can’t wait to get to the store to pick up the ingredients. Thank you so much.

    Avacado hummus — who would have thought! I bet some roasted red pepper dunked in would be delish. Over here, avacados are $1 each. In California. Yep. So the guacamole and avacado hummus will have to wait. Too bad too, because it’s good for babies. 😦

    Hope you all enjoy the recipe. 🙂

    Amy – $1 each? Wow, that’s cheap compared to what I have to pay here in CO. 😉 Once in a while they are 10 for $10 at Safeway, but usually I’m lucky to find them 2 for $3.

    This recipe actually sounds good! Can’t wait to try it. 🙂

    Oh wow, that IS expensive… Groceries in general have really gone up and I’m sure it’s due to the rising fuel prices.

    Hey Amy! It sounds yummy! I love hummus but have never made my own … where do you find the Tahini and what kind of bottle/jar is it in? Thanks!

  8. amygeekgrl Says:

    Tiff – Hope you enjoy it!

    Amy – Yep, they have us over a barrel.

    Kellie – You can find Tahini at some regular grocery stores (mine USED to carry it), but you might have better luck going to a natural foods store like Whole Foods, Vitamin Cottage, Trader Joe’s, Wild Oats, etc. Check by the peanut butter, almond butter, etc. Tahini is actually made from sesame seeds and is just another nut butter.

    Just a couple of questions:
    What is T? Tablespoon, Teaspoon? I’ve never seen it before.

    How long does it keep in the fridge?
