A few weeks ago I had a knock at my front door. It was Grant with another delicious recipe he tested. He couldn’t decide if he should make guacamole or hummus – so he decided to mix them together. Genius! I couldn’t stop eating it. The mix of avocado, cilantro and chickpeas was mouthwatering. You can’t just have one or ten . . . I ate the entire bowl. I highly recommend making this for when guests come over!
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 handfuls of fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove
1 ripe avocado
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons- extra- virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon or lemon or lime juice
1. In a food processor, add in chickpeas, cilantro, garlic, and avocado. Pulse until finely chopped.
2. With the machine running, slowly add in the olive oil, lemon or lime juice and water, until the mixture is smooth.
3. Season with salt and pepper and serve with tortilla chips or carrots sticks or whatever you like.
