16th May 2018

Prep Time12 mins

Yields2 Servings

 150 g chickpeas (drained weight)
 50 g juice from the chickpeas
 70 g avocado
 ½ tsp olive oil
 a couple pinches of salt and black pepper
 ½ tsp paprika
 15 drops lemon juice (may want to add more or less, completely depends on your personal preference)
 (optional) part of a garlic clove or use a garlic grinder

1

Chop your avocado into small chunks and place in your blender.

2

Drain the liquid from the chickpeas into a glass. Then add the chickpeas into the blender along with the oil, lemon juice, paprika and salt / pepper. If you want to use garlic add it in at this stage too.

3

Blend for 5 seconds (until everything appears to be broken down).

4

Then add the chickpea juice and blend for 10 more seconds. After this quickly give the mixture a mix with a knife to make sure there’s no lumps stuck on the edge. Then blend for a further 10 seconds.

5

You may want to taste the hummus at this point to see if you’d like to add any more spices in, then you’re ready to scoop it into a ramekin and enjoy!

Can be enjoyed nicely with falafel, vegetable sticks or oat cakes.
