Avocado Hummus


We recently tried the following recipe and can say it is very good. This twist on hummus, a Mediterranean diet staple, is so creamy and delicious (and packed with healthy fats), that you may just eat it with a spoon and lose the pita altogether.

- one can chickpeas (drained)
- one avocado
- 5 tablespoons tahini
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- four or five cloves of garlic
- 3/4 cup water
- salt/pepper to taste
- juice of one lemon (or more to taste)

Directions - Peel and cut avocado, removing the pit. Combine all ingredients in food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Serve with warm pita wedges.
