Avocado Almond Butter Hummus
Serves: 2
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped (use only one if you are very sensitive to garlic)
  • ½ a medium sized avocado
  • Juice from half a lemon (about 3 tbsp)
  • 1 tbsp almond butter (or tahini, sunflower seed butter...)
  • 2 cups chickpeas (cooked or canned)
  • 2 - 4 tbsp of liquid from the chickpea can or water
  • ¼ - ½ tsp sea salt (to taste)
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • 2 - 5 drops of hot sauce (to taste)
  • Olive oil for drizzling (optional)
  1. Pulse garlic, avocado, lemon and almond butter in the food processor (or blender).
  2. Slowly add the chickpeas. Pulse until they are smooth. Add chickpea liquid/water when needed by the tbsp to ensure hummus blends well and is very creamy.
  3. Add the sea salt, cumin, cayenne and hot sauce (to taste) and pulse to blend in all the spices.
  4. Blend away until nice and creamy and smooth.
  5. Cut up some veggies. Dip, savour and enjoy :)
