Green Hummus

Enjoy a healthy and fresh green hummus.
By Marta Nadales

I’m sure most of you have tried -or heard about -hummus, a delicious vegetarian dip very common in the Mediterranean. Its main ingredients are chickpeas, Tahini (sesame seed paste), garlic and cumin seeds. It’s a frequent appetizer whenever I have friends around, and we love it!

However, when some of my guests told me they’d rather have something fresher I started thinking… I had just returned from my parents’ house and had brought some ripe avocados, so.. how about some green hummus? I reduced the amount of chickpeas, added avocados, more lemon and… tadaaaa..! a lighter and fresher hummus. Simply delicious!
