Avocado Green Hummus with Cilantro and Wasabi

img_3638Hummus is the Arabic word for garbanzo beans. That is why there can be only one hummus: the mixture of pureed garbanzo beans, tahini, and lemon.  For a long time, I stood my ground and would name any other kind of “hummus” a spread.

I argued with no avail and threw in the towel. Like they say,” if you can not beat them join them”. Well, I joined them. I have to admit it made my life easier.

Now, I am on quest to make a rainbow of hummus. I made a red, pepper hummus, a tan, normal hummus, a yellow, beet hummus, and a purple, beet hummus. Today, I made for you green hummus. Next, I will conquer the black hummus.

Boil the garbanzo beans until very soft or used canned cooked garbanzo beans.  Drain and place in food processor with the garlic, and the avocado.  Puree into smooth paste.
