Servings 4 -6


  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 cup chickpeas canned or cooked
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika or to taste
  • ½ cup chickpea liquid or water


  • First, cut your avocado in half and remove pit.
  • Using a spoon, carefully scoop whole avocado from skin. If it breaks a little, no worries. It’s going to be pureed into hummus anyways!
  • Heat up your grill or a grill pan to medium and spray with olive oil or a non stick spray. Grill until avocado is charred, or about 5-7 minutes.
  • Next, in a food processor, combine avocado, chickpeas, tahini, and garlic.
  • Then add extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika for extra smokiness (or to taste) and enough water or chickpea liquid to make it smooth!
  • Blend until smooth and enjoy! Garnish with olive oil and smoked paprika.
