Print

This recipe is going to be your new favorite food to have on hand all the time! Avocado hummus is not only delicious, but packed with amazing nutrients, health fats and complex carbohydrates. Plus, it is so versatile that the options of how you can serve it are endless.

Further Food Commentary:

Avocados are an excellent source of healthy polyunsaturated fats. Chickpeas are an excellent source of fiber and protein. I agree with Priscilla, if you can choose home-cooked chickpeas instead of canned, it will greatly reduce the sodium content. Up your daily vegetable intake by pairing this delicious hummus with some crunchy raw veggies like radish, carrot, and bell pepper.
