You may be asking yourself…
“Self, why in the world is Red posting about “Avocado Hummus” on Good Friday?”
Well, Self…I will tell you why.
Not everyone celebrates Good Friday, but those that do will enjoy this “meatless” appetizer. For those on Spring Break, it’s actually perfect timing because it travels well, and makes a perfect treat with family and friends.
So…my kids love store bought hummus. I actually love it too. However, it’s always fun to show the kids how things are really made. My teens were shocked that hummus is made from garbanzo beans. They detest garbanzo beans. How could this be?
Well, after they got over that, I decided to throw in another shocker. Avocados & spinach can also be added into hummus for more flavor-fied, healtha-fied goodness. They were so skeptical at this point, I thought I may have lost them.
I was wrong.
As soon as they smelled the garlic and other ingredients they grabbed the bag of chips and tried a scoop full. Valerie is the easy one, Daphne is more like Mikey. She won’t eat anything! I knew I had a hit when they went for a bowl and actually sat down at the table.
The fact that my kids were eating beans, avocados, spinach, Greek yogurt, & olive oil all at once was thrilling I tell ya.
I hope you try it…or PIN for later.
Hey carrot top…before you go, check this out.
My hair dresser’s daughter did this “Avocado Hummus Carrot Pot” platter for an Easter brunch. She filled little pots with the hummus, then stuck mini carrots in each one. She topped it off, literally, with parsley stuck in the carrots for the tops. So clever…and she’s only in 5th grade!Tags: avocado, avocado hummus, best hummus recipe, easy hummus, fast hummus recipe, garlic, garlic hummus, green hummus, healthy appetizer, healthy dip, homemade hummus, hummus, kid friendly hummus, olive oil hummus, party dip, teenager food, teenager snack Posted by
