Avocado Hummus

Published by on

This latest post comes from a get-together I was at yesterday for a reading of a web series my writing partner and I are doing. Man, I love get-togethers. I wish I liked watching sports so I would have more excuses for them. Everyone gets assigned a type of food to be in charge of and you pig out to your hearts content.

As I mentioned, yesterday’s get-together was for something my partner and I had written, so we weren’t so much pigging-out as we were nervously listening to our words being said outloud…by other people. Ahhh!
At this particular, nail-biting get-together… I was in charge of bringing the veggies and hummus.

I actually ended up just buying that hummus, but today I decided I would make one for our next gathering we have today. I came across this recipe on the blog Inspired Dreamer. It seemed simple enough and involved one of my favorites, avocado, the “super food”.

It’s hard to make hummus or even avocado hummus look beautiful in a photograph, but trust me, it’s tasty. You should try it when you’re assigned veggie appetizers for your next get-together. Some of my guests aren’t big fans of cilantro, but if I was making this just for me, I would have thrown some on for garnish because cilantro rocks.
