Directions

1In a large food processor, fitted with a blade, add the hummus ingredients (garlic, chickpeas, avocados, Greek yogurt, tahini, salt, cumin, cayenne and lime juice). Run the food processor to blend until the hummus mixture is smooth.

2Test, and if it's too thick, add a very little bit of the chickpeas canning liquid. Run the processor again until you achieve the desired creamy consistency. Adjust seasoning as needed.

3Transfer the avocado hummus to a serving dish and cover tightly with plastic wrap (if you press the plastic warp well, it will help prevent air from changing the color of the avocado hummus). Chill a few minutes before serving. Uncover and smooth the surface of the hummus and drizzle a bit of extra virgin olive oil. Garnish with fresh parsley or another herb if you like.

Tips: The addition of Greek yogurt along with ripe avocados is a great start with this creamy dip. If you have the time and you want your avocado hummus to be even more creamy, you can do two things with your chickpeas (totally optional, though):

1. If using canned chickpeas (as done here) cook them in their juice with more water for about 15 to 20 minutes or so.

2. Peel the chickpeas by simply rubbing the chickpeas between hands under running water and that helps remove the peel.
