Herby Avocado Hummus

This delicious Herby Avocado Hummus will wow on any platter and makes a perfect addition to any salad, or try it with pepitas for a yummy snack!

Makes about 2.5 cups

½ large ripe avocado
1 15½-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed, drained
⅓cup tahini, well mixed
¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, finely grated or smashed to a paste with flat side of knife on cutting board
¾ teaspoon (or more) kosher salt
10 cranks freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup cilantro leaves with tender stems
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas; for serving)


Process avocado, chickpeas, tahini, lime juice, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, and 1 cup cilantro in a food processor until smooth, about 1 minute. With the motor running, stream in 2 Tbsp. oil, then continue to process until hummus is very light and creamy, about 1 minute longer. Taste and season with salt, if needed.

Transfer hummus to a shallow bowl. Top with pepitas and cilantro and drizzle with more oil.

Hummus can be made 4 days ahead. Transfer to an airtight container, cover surface with plastic, and chill.
