The Avocado Hummus is a recipe where you get a double treat of enjoying avocados and hummus in one dish. It is very easy to prepare and you can enjoy it with raw vegetables like peppers, carrots and cucumber, or with pita chips as well. This homemade hummus can be made in under 10 minutes and it makes for the perfect midday snack. My family loves this dip with vegetables which helps to increase fibre consumption, vitamins and minerals as well.
🥑 Avocados are good fats and improve digestion.
🥑 Avocado provides natural fibre approximately 6-7 gms per half fruit which improves digestive tract, constipation and reduces the risk of colon cancer.
🥑 Additionally, chickpeas contain vitamin K, folate, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, choline, and selenium.
🥑 Besides being an excellent vegan and gluten-free source of protein and fibre, chickpeas also contain exceptional levels of iron, vitamin B-6, and magnesium.
Tahini is basically Sesame Seed Puree. You can make it at home or try a store brand. Tahini is an important ingredient of this recipe and has many health benefits.
🥑 High in healthy fats and amino acids
🥑 A great source of essential vitamins and minerals
🥑 Helps to regulate blood pressure and cholesterol
