If you’re into hummus and guacamole, your pupils will have jumped tenfold just reading the headline. If not, you’ll feel the same way when you dive into this creamy dream of hummus and avocado. You won’t be able to stop any time soon. Believe me, Hummus Guacamole Style is the most perfect fusion since creamy dips were invented!
Hummus and avocado: “Why didn’t we meet before?”
I have firmly resolved not to write this text on an empty stomach. The stomach is full, I am actually full. Nevertheless, I’m sitting here shakily at my notebook while I’m writing and I WANT TO EAT THIS NOW! Ok, I’m going to take a deep breath and start all over again.
I’ve been spoon-fed hummus since I was a baby and I can’t imagine my life without it. But why the hell didn’t I discover this incredibly delicious fusion with avocado a few years earlier? Once again, it was my sister who dared to alter our sacred classic and draped an avocado on top. The faces were long, but when we tasted it, the eyes got big and happy.
Hummus in itself is a feast for the eyes: creamy, spread with a spoon in a bowl and drizzled with olive oil, it’s like a pretty picture I can’t get enough of. But top it all off with diced avocado and some lime juice, chopped tomatoes, some coriander and a few sumac onions and you’ve turned one of the best Levant classics into an absolute fusion-mezze-artwork-spectacle-SCHRASTGLEICHAUS!
To add a little extra flavour, I highly recommend topping the plate with sesame seeds and black cumin. Serve with fresh pita bread or baguette for dipping, or go all out. I can’t wait to see if you love hummus guacamole as much as I do 🙂
