Cilantro Avocado Hummus – Sharon Palmer, The Plant Powered Dietitian


Turn your classic hummus into a colorful, creamy masterpiece with just a few flavorful additions: avocados, lime, jalapeño, and cilantro. If you love hummus as much as me, you always have a container in your fridge. But did you know that you can whip up the best hummus ever in the blender or food processor in mere minutes? And then you can get creative beyond your classic chickpea, tahini, olive oil hummus. Case in point: This creamy Cilantro Avocado Hummus, which boasts a mild spice, citrus, and lime flavor that suits so many applications. You can serve this avocado hummus recipe with whole grain pita and veggies as an appetizer, and it’s also great as an accompaniment with tacos, burritos, sandwiches, burrito bowls, grain salads, and vegan meatballs. Make up a batch of this completely vegan, gluten free Cilantro Avocado Hummus in about 10 minutes, and it will last up to five days in the fridge. Serve it at you next party, potluck, picnic, or tailgate event. I served it recently for a holiday party and it was the talk of the event!
