Avocado Hummus

Avocado Hummus a1

While the notion of combining avocado with hummus is not revolutionary, I was compelled to make one from the moment I saw the recipe on the September ’13 issue of The Super Food Ideas Magazine. I love the idea of topping the hummus with golden morsels which came in the form of sauteed chickpeas. Not only they made the hummus to look spectacular especially on photos, I love the texture difference between the velvety and creaminess of processed chickpeas and avocado against the slightly crispy sauteed chickpeas. The final touch of a pinch of smoked paprika should not be disregarded as it gave a surprise hit of warmth and smokiness which tied in beautifully with the garlic and the earthiness of tahini.

If you are already a hummus lover, I have no doubt that this variation of hummus will hit the spot!

    I’ve made this a few times now but I found it bland the first time so now I double the garlic and also add a 1/4 teaspoon of cumin for a slightly spicier taste.
    Also traditional hummus always has some salt in it (according to my Lebanese neighbour!) so I add a 1/2 teaspoon… but that’s definitely optional. :-)
