Avocado meets hummus - it was always destined to be a match made in heaven!
How do you make hummus? 🤔
Whichever hummus recipe you choose, it will almost always be made using a base of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and olive oil.
Tahini is a paste made with sesame seeds, it is a staple food in many Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries. You can get it from most large supermarkets and you only use 1-2 tablespoons per recipe. So, a little goes a long way and one jar of tahini will be enough to make a few batches of homemade hummus!
When blended together, tahini gives chickpeas a rich and creamy texture and the olive oil and lemon juice help to loosen things up for a light and glossy finish! All that's left to do is add your seasoning, preferred herbs & spices and any extras to flavour the hummus - before blending once more.
When Avocado Met Hummus 🥑
Hummus is super versatile so you can add pretty much anything you like when blending, to create a different texture and flavour every time.
This recipe uses perfectly ripe avocado to bring a super smooth texture, delicious avo flavour and an extra dose of energising healthy fats. The lemon juice also helps to keep the avo from oxidising (discolouring), so you also get a vibrant green hummus which just screams goodness!
