Avocado Hummus

Author Notes

Two of my favorite things are even better together - Yotam & Sami's Basic Hummus Recipe with the added flavor and color of a perfectly ripened Avocado and spices. I originally posted this using canned chickpeas, but remade it with the referenced hummus recipe and found a HUGE difference in flavor.

Serve as a dip with naan strips toasted with a sprinkle of olive oil, cumin and smoked paprika, or as a spread on sandwiches and crostini appetizers. So simple, yet so packed full of flavor and goodness! What's not to love? —marymary
