Our hummus follows the same concept as the classic gluten-free Levantine dip or spread made with chickpeas.
ABOUT AVOCADO HUMMUS RECIPE
We make this avocado hummus with tahini (sesame seed) paste, lemon juice, seasonings, garlic, and olive oil.
The addition of avocado is the twist!
We then top this hummus dip with dried cranberries, which gives the dip a Christmasy touch, while adding a sweet-sour flavor that contrasts so well with the savory taste of the hummus.
Just serve the avocado hummus with Italian Mulino Bianco breadsticks — available in two delish and savory flavors, Sfilati Tomato and Sfilati Olives.
We served our hummus with the latter! These breadsticks add a great crunch that contrasts with the creaminess of the dip.
ABOUT MULINO BIANCO BREADSTICKS
Since 1877, Mulino Bianco has been perfecting its recipe for each product, always maintaining the same standards of high quality for all of them.
Because as you may know, when it comes to food, Italians are very demanding about products, ingredients, and flavors– no matter whether it is dinner, a simple snack or an appetizer.
Another bit of good news is that we don’t have to travel to Italy to find these breadsticks.
They are available at an HEB near you, as well as all of the other ingredients used in our Avocado Hummus Recipe.
HOW TO MAKE AVOCADO HUMMUS
- Blend canned chickpeas or garbanzo beans, avocado, tahini paste (optional), garlic, salt, ground pepper and cumin, lemon juice, olive oil, and parsley in a blender until creamy and smooth.
- Then, place mixture into a serving bowl and serve with the Mulino Bianco Sfilati Olive breasticks. Voila! Could it be easier than that?
