This is really a hybrid of hummus and guacamole--what could go wrong?! I saved some of the avocado for a smoothie (more to come on that). I also added two cloves of garlic but could have gone for more garlicy flavor.
Chickpeas, cilantro, avocado, garlic, some lemon juice and olive oil are all crushed and blended in a food processor. I chopped the cilantro a little bit because it was starting to look pretty full in my food processor. But it triumphed! I don't think you can quite get the store-bought consistency but maybe you have a super blender unlike me. It's still delicious with crackers, chips or fresh veggies! I also shamelessly ate this by the spoonful.
- 1 can (15oz) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 avocado (I used just under a whole one)
- 3 cups chopped cilantro
- 2 cloves of garlic (more if you'd like more garlicy flavor)
- 3 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- Combine the chickpeas, avocado, cilantro (chopped slightly), garlic, oil and juice in a food processor.
- Blend until smooth or smooth enough. I've heard removing the shells of the chickpeas is the key to smooth hummus. I'll have to try that.
- Dip fresh veggies or crackers in the guacamole-hummus and enjoy!
