Avocado and Cilantro Hummus

Recently, we were in Phoenix staying with our friend Alicia and as usual we had a day of cooking. This cooking day coincided with a Oscar party, so we worked on dishes that were party friendly. I came across this recipe on and was pleased with the results. I actually added extra cilantro to mine and then sprinkled some on top for presentation. Use as little or much as you like. I used olive oil in my recipe but you can use tahini if you prefer. Add more water or oil if you want a smoother dip.

Avocado and Cilantro Hummus

1 15oz can Garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 large avocado
3 cloves garlic
3 Tbsp chopped cilantro, plus extra for topping
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp water
1 1/2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Combine everything but oil in the bowl of food processor and with machine running, drizzle olive oil into bowl, until well blended. Serve in a bowl topped with fresh chopped cilantro.
