Avocado Cilantro Hummus

RoundLady's picture
  Canned garbanzos 12 Ounce, rinsed and drained (1 Can)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), peeled
  Ground cumin 2 Teaspoon
  Toasted sesame oil 2 Teaspoon (Asian Variety)
  Cilantro 1 1⁄4 Bunch (125 gm), washed and coarsely chopped (Large Bunch)
  Cayenne pepper 1 Dash
  Avocado 1 , peeled and mashed
  Salt To Taste
  Lemon juice/Lime juice 2 Tablespoon (Large Sized)

Drop garlic cloves in a whirring Cuisinart (use the regular blade). It will instantly be finely chopped. Add lemon juice, garbanzos, cumin, sesame oil, cayenne, and cilantro. Whir until it looks like guacamole. Remove from Cuisinart and place in bowl. Add the mashed avocado and add salt to taste.

Alternatively, to make just Hummus, leave out the avocado.

Spread on the middle of the Napa cabbage leaves and serve on a pretty platter. You may also serve the Hummacado with crackers, raw vegetables, torn flat bread, or use it as a spread on sandwiches.

Note: The sesame oil gives the flavor of Tahini (a common ingredient) without so many calories, and is actually much more flavorful.
