Ingredients Needed: 

You just need a few staples to make this easy, creamy, delicious hummus:

  • 2 Ripe avocados – make sure they are nice and soft and perfectly ripe!
  • 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • Tahini paste – get a good quality for the best taste
  • Fresh lemon juice – for best results, use it fresh from the lemon, not the stuff in the bottle.
  • Olive oil – use a good quality with a good taste. I use extra virgin olive oil.
  • Garlic cloves
  • Onion powder
  • Water – to help thin it out a little 
  • Salt 

Equipment Needed: 

You don’t need many tools to make this! You only need:

  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • A can opener
  • A good food processor

How to make this hummus

This hummus is so simple to make! For the full set of directions, make sure you scroll down to the recipe card below:

  1. Place the avocados, chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, onion powder, water, and salt in a food processor and blend until smooth. 
  2. If the hummus is too thick, you can add more water, lemon juice, or olive oil. 
  3. Adjust salt to taste.
  4. When serving, garnish with some smoked paprika, sesame seeds, fresh parsley, and diced tomato.

*Recipe Note: I use chickpeas straight from the can in this recipe, and it turns out great. But if you want extra, ultra, super smooth hummus, you can simmer the chickpeas in some water and a pinch of baking soda for 15 minutes first. Then rub the chickpeas in your hands (when cool), and remove the peel.  I only do this extra step if I am feeling super fancy, though! Using them from the can gives nice results as well.

Prepping ahead of time

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.

Recipe Note: As this hummus is made of avocado, it will turn light brown within the first 24 hours, don’t worry it is still safe to eat.

To help preserve as much of the vibrant fresh color as you can, cover the container with plastic wrap, pushing the plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the hummus before covering with a lid. You want to prevent as much air exposure as you can.

How to serve this to your family

This hummus is an excellent appetizer or snack! 

  • Serve it with your veggies (like cucumbers, carrots, or red bell peppers)
  • Serve it your favorite crackers,  with naan or pita bread.
  • Add it to your favorite sandwiches (like a breakfast sandwich or a turkey sandwich!)
  • Serve it with your meal – it would be awesome with grilled chicken, or kabobs!
