Herby Avocado Hummus

This delicious recipe was published in the March 2017 edition of bon appetit magazine. Take the extra steps to properly garnish your beautiful creation. I suggest serving with crunchy green celery, and beautiful, diagonally cut, carrots, and radishes.

1/2 - 1 large avocado

15 1/2 oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1/3 cup tahini

1/4 cup + 1 T fresh lime juice

1 clove finely chopped garlic (or smashed to paste)

Black pepper

1/4 tsp cumin

1 cup cilantro

Toasted pumpkin seeds
