As a Californian, I’m always looking for ways to include avocado into everything. They’re also crazy cheap right now so obviously I bought a huge bag of them.
Making your own hummus is super easy. As long as you have some tahini on hand, you can whip up hummus in just a few minutes.
- 2 ripe avocados
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1 15 oz. can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans
- 3 tablespoons tahini
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Drain your chickpeas and rinse them well. It’s best to use canned chickpeas for hummus, I’ve tried using dried chickpeas but the texture was off.
Then you basically just throw everything into your food processor, minus the salt and water.
Blend until smooth. You will probably need to add some water to get it to the right texture, so add a little at a time. Finally, add salt to taste at the end.
Dust some paprika on top and you’re good to go!

What a great idea! Does this taste kind of like guac?
Not really, guacamole is more tangy since it has lime juice and onion 🙂
That looks amazing
I’m new to clean eating (you can read my story on my blog) and so far I’m loving it- because of how great it makes me feel, and how delicious the food can be! Need to try this!
How cool! I hope you like the recipe 🙂
