1 (15-oz.) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil, plus additional for garnish, optional
Salt to taste
- Dice half the avocado and set aside.
- Mash the remaining half avocado, garbanzo beans, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt, and mix together until smooth. (The mixture can also be pureed in a blender or food processor.)
- Gently stir the diced avocado into the hummus mixture.
- Drizzle with avocado or olive oil if desired; serve.
