   Ingredients needed

   Ripe Avocado - 1 medium size
   Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans - 1 cup cooked
   Tahini - 1 tbsp
   Olive oil - 2 tbsp 
   Fresh Lemon Juice -1-2 tbsp
   Garlic - 1 clove (minced)
   Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
   Salt as needed
   Pepper powder - 1/8 tsp

   For Garnishing

   Paprika powder
   Parsley or coriander leaves
   Olive oil


Preparation

If using dry chick peas, wash and soak in plenty of water overnight or for 6-7 hours. Rinse well and pressure cook with a little salt and needed water for 3 whistles. Reserve the water in which the chick pea was cooked. If using canned ones, skip this step. Just rinse it well and drain the water.

Scoop out the pulp of avocado, discard the seed and the skin. Add lemon juice, mix well and set aside.

Method

Pulse together cooked chick peas, olive oil, tahini (check tahini recipe), garlic and cumin powder until smooth. Then add avocado, salt, pepper powder and pulse again until creamy. You may add a little of the reserved water if it is too thick and pulse for a second. Adjust seasonings according to your taste. 

Drizzle more olive oil on top if desired and sprinkle with paprika powder. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves or parsley leaves. Enjoy avocado hummus with tortilla chips or pita chips or use it as a spread for sandwich.
