This recipe is genius and I’m totally peeved that I didn’t think of it first.

Avocados? Love them. Hummus? Could eat it every day. It makes sense that the two together would produce a perfect marriage.

At first bite, this dip tastes like ordinary hummus, but then you’re hit with a lovely, sweet avocado aftertaste. Yum. Next time I’ll probably add more avocado, as there is no such thing as too much avocado.

What’s the most creative thing you’ve seen added to hummus?

    This looks really good – will have to try it. And I agree with you – there really is no such thing as too much avocado!

    Yum! I agree…kicking myself didn’t pull this one out of the bag first. No tahini in this recipe? I guess avo is taking care of the healthy fats content…

      You could add some tahini in if you wanted to, for sure.
