Five years ago, I had never eaten hummus or guacamole. The first time I encountered hummus, I gave Luke the “ew” face said “thanks, but no thanks”. I don’t know what I was thinking. Yesterday, I combined the two to make Hummamole!

Hummus + Guacamole = Hummamole! Don’t you love that word? :)

If you like hummus and you like guacamole, you will definitely like this combination. Using a food processor, it comes together in just a few minutes.

Just put all of your ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

You will likely need to stir it a few times with a spoon and blend again to get everything nice and smooth.

Enjoy with pita chips or tortilla chips!

Hummamole (Hummus + Guacamole)

Adapted from Gimme Some Oven

Ingredients:

  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • salt to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp)

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. You will likely need to use a spoon to stir and re-blend a few times because the mixture is very thick. I would also recommend stirring it in a bowl before serving in order to make sure the spices are mixed in evenly.
  2. Enjoy with pita chips or tortilla chips – your choice!

  1. Hummamole has quite the ring to it – I bet it’s super creamy and delicious! I keep hearing good things about pea/avocado spreads, and I can only imaging this is just as good!

  2. I actually made a really similar thing this weekend- just avocado, chickpeas, some garlic, cilantro, and lime juice mashed up and had it as a sandwich. So fresh and yummy!

    Great job on the run :D It always feels so good after, no matter how it felt during the run!
