This alternative to the usual hummus has quickly become my favourite version. It is mostly a swap out using avocados instead of tahini. It's great because I rarely have tahini in my house. This is a super creamy protein-packed snack that goes great with pita bread, veggies, or as a spread in a sandwich.

Prep Time: 7 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes

Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 2 avocados
  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 Tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse for a few minutes. Scrape down sides a couple times during this process.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with mint, if you like. Enjoy!

Off topic, but sometimes I use a bit of peanut butter and some sesame oil as a substitute for tahini. :)

I'm trying this. I don't have tahini in the house, either.

Awesome, Judy! That you're trying this, not that you don't have tahini either. Let me know how it goes! :)

I am allergic to citrus. Is there a substitute for lemon?
