Ingredients
  • 15 oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and dried
  • 1 Tablespoon tahini
  • 1.5 Tablespoons olive oil, plus more if desired
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice, plus more to taste
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1 medium reed avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Rinse and dry the chickpeas. For extra smooth hummus, peel the skins off the chickpeas and discard (optional). In the bowl of a food processor, combine the chickpeas, tahini, 1.5 Tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. Pulse until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed (about 2 minutes).

  2. Add the avocado, cumin, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Pulse again until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Serve with additional olive oil. Store the hummus in an airtight container in the fridge. For minimal browning, squeeze a bit of lemon juice on the top of the hummus before storing.
