Creamy Hummus With Avocado Oil Recipe

Last Update: February 25, 2023

When afternoon cravings hit, it’s easy to reach for chips, candy, or anything that’s bagged and ready to go. The problem with such quick-fix snacks is that they relieve hunger only temporarily; they’re not usually filled with enough good stuff to keep you full until dinner. This hummus is made with garbanzo beans (for protein) and avocado oil (for healthy fat), then puréed with silky tahini—you won’t be able to get enough of! And if you’re serving a crowd with a range of dietary needs, this gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free dip is perfect for party platters, too.

Creamy Hummus With Avocado Oil

Yield: 3 to 4 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes


¼ cup Thrive Market Organic Tahini
1 (10 ounce) bag garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about ½ a lemon)
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoon chopped parsley


In a food processor, purée tahini for 1 minute, until smooth and light in color. Add garbanzo beans, garlic, lemon juice, oil, and salt; process until smooth and creamy, 30 to 45 seconds. Add cumin, cayenne and parsley. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. Serve with your favorite pita chips or fresh veggies, or store covered in the refrigerator up to five days.
