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.
You know what? I used to have a strong dislike of chickpeas. What in the world was I thinking!
I used to spot them on a salad bar and easily pass them by. I never indulged on any hummus that was served at a party.
But fast forward about 15 years and these little yummies are in my cabinet or freezer or refrigerator always. Funny how things change.
Now, if you have not developed the love of the almighty chickpea, stick with me. Do not give up! They are a protein packed legume that are also a great source of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
They are also vegan and gluten-free. I highly recommend these homemade gluten free brownies that use chickpeas in place of flour. True story! They are a-mazing!
I can eat this avocado hummus all day long. With my favorite crackers or with fresh veggies like carrots, celery, red bell peppers, etc. Plus it makes for an amazing sandwich
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 tasting dip. I opted to not do that this time.
I also did not add tahini, which is common in hummus recipes, because I simply didn’t have any.
