avocado hummus

Hummus has recently become one of my favorite foods to snack on, Tribe makes a spicy red pepper hummus that I love. Making hummus is not that difficult, it’s basically seasoned ground chickpeas. I bought some raw chickpeas that I placed in water overnight and cooked them in a pot for about an hour on low heat. The idea to make it with avocado was because I had one that if I didn’t use it would’ve surely gone bad and we can’t be throwing away avocado, I think it’s illegal. So I took out my food processor and started to add things to it. I didn’t have a recipe to reference but I had a basic idea of the ingredients that make a basic hummus. It did come out a little bit on the drier side but it was perfect for spreading it on my sandwich.

ingredients
1 medium avocado
2 cups of chickpeas
3 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tbsp tahini paste
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp olive oil
 ¼ cup water
½ tsp salt
cilantro, chopped

instructions
Using a food processor, add chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, and water until all chickpeas are well blended. Then add the rest of ingredients and grind some more. Leave the cilantro for last, add and blend so it distributes evenly. Consume immediately!

    • you’re 10 weeks out! wow that’s awesome, almost at single digits! Not sure what your nutrition plan looks like but I would think classic hummus would be a good option for snack alternatives. It doesn’t contain much fat and carbs are around 5g per serving (2 tbsp). But just like peanut butter I’m always like “this is all I get for one serving?” hahaha
