With only half a dozen ingredients, my creamy avocado hummus is ready in just a few minutes, and is full of goodness, and super-delicious. Especially when eaten by the spoonful!
As some of you may recall, a while back I had some major dental surgery, and I discovered that it's not until you have a face full of stitches you realise just how many foods are out of bounds.
Although my mouth healed well from all the surgery, it was eight months until I could eat food which wasn't soft. And of course, because of that, I wanted all the sandwiches, all the crackers, all the raw veggies!
Instead though, I contented myself with lots of soup and congee.
In particular, this creamy avocado hummus.
Om nom nom!
Creamy Avocado Hummus
- vegan (of course!)
- easy to make
- easy to eat (!)
Eat it with crudités, crisps (potato chips), tortilla chips, on crackers, with bread sticks, pittas, in sandwiches, on baked potatoes... or straight out of the bowl. Whatever floats your boat!

I swear my girlfriend will ask me to marry her if I make this for her. She's an absolute avocado and hummus fiend. ? Great work Nico!

I made it & loved smearing it on sourdough bread slice! Delicious! x
Fantastic - I'm so glad you love it, Sophie. Thanks for letting me know!
Is the sourdough home-made? I really should get a mother sponge going, I'm a huge fan of sourdough! xx

This looks really good! We love making our own hummus and tehina but have never thought to add avocadoes to the mix! What a fabulous idea! 🙂 Will have to try your recipe very soon!
It makes it so creamy, Alix, and adds a lovely subtle flavour too. It's very moreish! xx
Oh man, avocado hummus sounds amazing!
It really is, Amy! xx
