Loaded with protein, this Avocado Hummus will quickly become a favorite dip or healthy snack. Serve with your favorite crackers, warm pita bread, fresh veggies or even on a sandwich or wrap.
I always have these a stash of canned chickpeas in my cabinet or in the freezer since I have learned how to cook dried chickpeas. Dried chickpeas are so much cheaper than canned and they are really easy to cook on the stove in less than an hour.
Chickpeas are a protein-packed legume that is also a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Chickpeas are also vegan and gluten-free so you can use them in baking as well believe it or not. I highly recommend these homemade gluten free brownies that use chickpeas in place of flour. They are truly amazing!
I could eat this simple avocado hummus all day long. I usually have it for an afternoon nack with my favorite crackers and fresh veggies like carrots, celery, red bell peppers, etc. But it also makes an amazing addition to a sandwich or wrap or on toast for a healthy lunch.
It is very easy to whip up with simple ingredients. You could even add cilantro if you’d like to make it more like a guacamole dip.
This hummus is made without tahini as well which is common in hummus recipes, because I simply didn’t have any. If you wanted to add it for extra creaminess, simply add about ¼ cup of tahini to the recipe.
