Chop your avocado into small chunks and place in your blender.
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.
Blend for 5 seconds (until everything appears to be broken down).
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.
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.
