Avocado Hummus

I am S-O-R-E!

I started installing my new floors yesterday (blog post to come after it is finished) and I could not be more excited with they way it is beginning to turn out and create such a dramatic new look for our home.

When we ordered our new floors about a month ago, I took a chance and said that I would install them myself. The place that sold the floor quoted me double what I paid for the floor for installation and I was astonished, so I said that I could do it myself. Now I know why they charge so much for installation. This is seriously some back breaking work… or in my case, leg soreness work.

Demo only took about 15 minutes to pull up all the old carpet and laminate that was there before. If only installation of the new floor took that long!

Seriously though, I can barely walk and my legs are like jello, so I am taking my sweet time at the computer this morning before heading back up to get started on day 2 of installation. There is a lot of bending and squatting involved to get this project done and I seriously underestimated the amount of work that would go into this. My legs feel like the day after leg day times 100!

However, I do have to say that I am feeling a huge sense of accomplishment getting this done by myself instead of hiring someone to do it for me. And I have to say that the floors are looking amazing! It's crazy how one little change can make such a huge difference in the look of your home.

So, since I am installing new floors… my counter-tops are literally covered in tools and nails and everything else needed to install floors… I decided to give you guys a quick and simple appetizer or snack recipe. I made some of this on a quick break and my mom (my floor install helper) and I almost devoured the whole thing yesterday.

My Aunt Dianne has always made her own hummus and always thought it was hard and that I would never be able to make it properly. Well, I realized that it's kind of hard to screw up hummus and it's also a perfect snack for installing new floors… or just a random day. It'a portable and I can grab a scoop/bite while walking out to the garage to cut my next piece.

This avocado hummus is creamy and delicious and something I'm sure that anyone will love. Especially all my fellow avocado lovers out there. So go ahead and give it a try! Or maybe try to install your own floors? Or both!

Or just pin for later. Whatever works for you!

Enjoy.

    1. I do not have a substitute. Is it that you just can’t find it in the store? You could always just leave it out but the texture will be altered.

  1. This is so yummy! My coworker found this on Pinterest and requested I make it for her so I whipped some up before work and it was such a hit. Thanks for the great recipe.

  2. Hi there, what size can of chick peas did you use? And how do you think lemon juice will work? I’m sure you could hardly tell the difference but I’m not a fan of lime. Thanks! Happy cooking!

    1. I used a 15oz can of chickpeas. And I can’t say that the lemon juice would taste good or that you wouldn’t be able to tell a difference… there is quite a different flavor profile between lemon and lime. You could just leave it out if you don’t like lime juice.

  3. Love this recipe! I did make some minor changes to our taste… used 2 TBSP lime juice, doubled the cumin & garlic & added a pinch of cayenne pepper. Outstanding!

    1. Hi Frankie,

      No, I don’t think it will freeze well but you are more than welcome to give it a try. And I would recommend storing it for no more then 3-4 days in an airtight container.
