Here’s a simple nutritious recipe for the perfect hummus (combining lime zest, sea salt and the creaminess of the avocado pureed with chickpeas) recommended by my friend, Kathy Smart. More information on the recipe and image source can be found here.

  • 1 (15 oz.) can chick peas, well drained
  • 2 medium ripe avocados, cored and peeled
  • 3 Tbsp. each of olive oil, fresh lime juice and tahini

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • ½ teaspoon each of sea salt, cumin, cayenne pepper and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Pulse chickpeas, avocados, olive oil, tahini, limejuice, lime zest, garlic and all spices in a food processor until smooth.
