A healthy and flavorful protein-rich tahini-free Spicy Cilantro Avocado Hummus that is gluten-free, vegan, and super creamy and delicious!
This is one of those recipes that combines several of my favorite things. There is little to go wrong when you have chickpeas, avocado, and cilantro in one dish. Wouldn’t you agree?
This Spicy Cilantro Avocado Hummus strikes a perfect balance between light and refreshing & creamy and spicy.
This Vegan Tahini-Free Hummus Recipe is:
Rich in protein, heart healthy fats, fiber, heavy metal detoxing cilantro!
Light & refreshing with its hint of lemon.
Super smooth and creamy.
Ridiculously quick & easy to make.
Gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, sugar-free.
Tips for making Avocado Hummus:
Whenever I do not have chickpeas / garbanzo beans on hand, I use white beans, pinto beans or red lentils instead for similar results.
Do not have cilantro on hand? Fresh parsley works in a pinch. The flavor will be different, but still delicious!
The lemon juice can be replaced with apple cider vinegar, if need be.
Want a bit more of a flavor punch, or are you a major garlic fan like myself? Throw in a few more cloves for a richer hummus.
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin can be used in place of cumin seeds.
This is a versatile recipe! This easy hummus can be used as a dip, a spread, a salad dressing, a pasta sauce + more!
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
And, can I just add that this dip is divine alongside some cassava or plantain chips? Why, yes it is. Whether you’re in need of the perfect appetizer for entertaining or would rather indulge all on your own, I know you’ll love this flavorful and fun hummus just as much as we do!
