Avo ‘Hummus’

Some of my best cooking ideas come from either needing to use a particular ingredient OR me having a craving for something. And this Avo ‘Hummus’ recipe was a combo of the two.

I had a craving for hummus. I had an avocado that couldn’t wait another day.

I like to think I’m a genius but really. Anyone in the same situation would have come to the same conclusion.

What happens when I replace the chickpeas in hummus with avocado? I’ll tell you what happens. A whole lot of deliciousness.

And there’s a surprising bonus – the avocado will last longer this way. Actually in theory it should last longer because of the lemon juice BUT to be honest I haven’t had any left for more than a day to really test it out.

Avo 'Hummus'

Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 1.5 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 medium avocados
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons water

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a tall jar or jug with a big pinch of salt. Use a stick blender to puree. Or mash with a fork - it won't be as smooth but will still be good.
  • Taste and season with more salt / lemon or tahini if needed. If you want it more of a sauce consistency add more water. Use anywhere you would normally use hummus.

Variations & Substitutions for Avo ‘Hummus’

pantry-friendly – use canned chickpeas and vinegar in the place of the lemon juice.

different base – any cooked veg or legumes that you think will taste good will work – you want about 250g (9oz) base ingredient. I’ve made broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato so much potential.

Waste Avoidance Strategy

avocado – use for another meal. Don’t freeze.

lemon – whole lemon will keep wrapped in a plastic bag in the fridge for months.

tahini – I keep mine in the pantry but will keep longer in the fridge if open.

garlic – will keep in the pantry for months. Best if in a dark corner in a brown paper bag.

Problem Solving Guide

bland – more salt! More lemon or more tahini. Or add in a flavour bomb.

Prepare Ahead

Yes! Just make as per the recipe. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to a weeks or can be frozen.
