Servings: 6-8

 

Ingredients

  • 1, 16 oz. can chickpeas

  • 2 ripe avocados

  • Juice of 2 limes

  • ¼ cup tahini

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • ¼ medium red onion

  • 5 – 10 dashes hot sauce (i.e. Tabasco or Frank’s Red Hot Sauce)


What to do:


Step 1

Blend all ingredients but avocado and red onion in a blender until well combined but still chunky. If you don’t have a blender you can just mash it in a bowl. Add avocado and red onion until it becomes a chunky puree. If you want a more creamy texture, you can also add a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

Step 2

Transfer hummus to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Step 3

Serve with grilled 100% whole grain pitas (cut into 1/8ths) or tortilla chips.
