Lemon Avocado Hummus

This recipe combines the best of guacamole and hummus with a delicious boost of lemon flavor and goodness. White beans and spinach add protein and other nutrients for a healthy snack you can eat with toasted pita, spread on crackers or bread, or as a delicious creamy layer in a wrap.
Course: Appetizer

Ingredients

  • 1 can white kidney beans
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1/2 cup scallions chopped
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

Food Processor Method

  • Drain the beans into a strainer and rinse with cold water.
  • Peel the avocado and cut away the seed.
  • Add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  • Add more olive oil as needed to create just the right texture.

Microwave Method

  • You can make it without a food processor by heating the beans in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
  • Drain - keeping the liquid in case you need it to thin the hummus - and mash the beans with a large fork or potato masher.
  • Mash the avocado the same way and blend with a large fork or whisk.
  • Chop the spinach, garlic, and scallions as finely as you can, and mash with the side of a heavy knife before stirring into the mixture.
  • The result will be more rustic in texture - i.e. somewhat uneven, but still an appealing blend of colors and flavors.
