Prep Time10 mins

Total Time15 mins
Servings: 2 cups of hummus
Author: Samantha Ferraro


  • 1 avocado
  • 2 cups garbanzo beans fresh or canned
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 garlic clove roughly chopped
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Water optional, for thinning out consistency
  • Olive oil for drizzling and garnish
  • za'atar for garnish


  • Drain and rinse garbanzo beans. Remove the outer shell of each bean with your fingers and discard shell. Add to food processor.
  • Along with the garbanzo beans, add the flesh of the avocado, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Pulse together until everything is combined.
  • If it is too thick, add a Tb of water at a time until desired consistency. I also like to add extra lemon juice. Taste for seasoning.
  • When done, layer hummus on a plate, making a small well in the center. Drizzle additional olive oil and sprinkle za'atar.
