This healthy avocado hummus with tahini is a delicious and nutritious way to change up your hummus. Gluten Free and Vegan.

 

We all have go-to foods that we couldn’t live without. For me, hummus is one of them.

It doesn’t matter what the flavor – roasted red pepper, pine nut, you name it – I absolutely adore hummus. I eat it with veggies and crackers for a snack. (Lately, I have a weird obsession with carrot chips.

I put it on wraps and sandwiches.

I’ve even been known to add a dollop or two to a salad to add in some protein and healthy fats.

You know another food I adore? Avocados.

I am obsessed.

Seriously.

Very few days go by without me eating at least 1/2 of an avocado.

Make sure you don’t skimp on the lemon juice as that is what will keep the dip from browning. I also recommend storing this with plastic wrap directly on the hummus the same way that you would guacamole.
