Recipe | Cilantro + Avocado Hummus

In the past five years my love for hummus must have been the fastest growing love of any type of edible substance in the history of Jen. A few months ago, one of my friends mentioned to me that he makes his own hummus instead of buying pre-made hummus in the stores since it's ridiculously cheaper and it's easier to experiment with different flavors. It was always in the back of my mind, but recently Jeremy's dad and stepmom gifted us with a food processor as a belated housewarming gift and I'm pretty sure we're already best friends. It also gave us the perfect opportunity to finally make our own hummus and I knew I had to start with some Cilantro and Avocado Hummus. It's like if guacamole and hummus got together, went on a few dates, had a whirlwind of a romance, and made a baby out of wedlock. So good.

Cilantro + Avocado Hummus
12 Servings, 10 minutes

1 can Chickpeas
1 large Avocado
1 clove Garlic
Handful of fresh Cilantro
2 tbsp Water
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1/4 tsp Salt

Combine everything in a food processor and blend well until it's a creamy and consistent texture. The hummus will be creamy and thick - if you prefer to have larger chunks of avocado and chickpeas, feel free to grind the ingredients for a shorter amount of time.

Top everything with an extra drizzle or two of olive oil and some fresh sprigs of cilantro to do the trick. Serve with dipping foods (carrots, celery, pita bread, tortilla chips, etc.) or try using it as an ingredient to larger recipes in place of guacamole.

Happy Nomming!
