Now that the good weather’s here, I’m always on the lookout for delicious and nutritious recipes for the summer months.
I’ve never been a big fan of Hummus or Guacamole, finding both chickpeas and avocado rather bland in their own ways. But combined, with a few extras thrown in – I’m loving my Hummamole, and I’m sure you will, too!
Here’s how to make it:
Home-made Hummamole Dip
1 large avocado (approx150g after being peeled and pitted)
1 jar of chickpeas – drained and washed (approx. 150g)
2 fat cloves of garlic – peeled and crushed
1 small red onion – peeled and chopped
½ cup fresh cilantro – chopped (you could use fresh mint leaves instead, if you prefer)
2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 lemons – juiced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Pinch of hot chilli powder
A few twists of black pepper
Simply throw all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Add a little water to thin out the consistency if you prefer.
I usually cut some batons of carrots, red and green peppers, celery and red onions for dipping in, and the Hummamole will keep in the fridge for a few days.
It’s as simple as that!

Mmmhh that looks so yummy it will be one of our next meals! As we are such junk food addicts I doubt that we will have it with healthy fresh veggies though, probably more like with nachos hehe.
I´m sure it will be just as tasty with nachos 🙂
That looks like a delicious dip. Healthy too.
You should try it! It’s certainly a favourite in this house 🙂
I love fusion and this sounds like a great one 🙂
Fusion – that’s it!
that looks and sounds incredible – guess what I am getting top up to soon as I can hit a shop!
Hope you enjoy it, Marco.
Of course I will – waiting for my car – almost done with it, or so they say – then it’s off into the sunset…I think.
I love Hummus and guacamole, and eat a couple of avocados most weeks, so this is a great recipe. We’ve recently been dipping with a hummus and green olive dip which is also a delicious nutritious variation 🙂
Mmmmm sounds great!
Great presentation and looks delicious!
Give it a try – it IS delicious!
This looks delicious! I eat hummus everyday!
Sure – avocado flavoured hummus for you then, to make a nice change!
Mmmmm…my favourite. I love avocado’s. Great shots hon and thanks for sharing the recipe. I am going to try it for sure. 🙂 *hugs*
You’re welcome, my friend 🙂
Mmmmm. Sounds good – and healthy too! I’m ready for something Spanish. If I can’t have the sun and the vistas, perhaps your dip will suffice 🙂
Well, I don’t know how “Spanish” it is, Sally – but you are welcome to share my sun and vistas anytime 🙂
I certainly know what I’m making this afternoon – this looks absolutely fantastic! 😀
Excellent! Hope you enjoy it Dianne 🙂
You hooked me! Two of my favorite things EVER, I’m def going to make this. I eat so much hummus, and I love avos but I’ve never thought to combine them. Genius!
It will make a nice change for you then 🙂
I hope you will let me know how you get on!
Avocados are one of my favorite foods and I’ve always been a big fan of both Hummus and Guacamole but I can’t imagine combining them…? I think it may be too much for my sensitive digestion.
Well, it’s not for everyone, I’m sure, Rosie – but as I’m fond of neither, it’s the perfect solution for me 🙂
Intriguing! I love both hummus and guacamole, so I am going to have to try this!
Do let me know how you get on, won’t you, Naomi?
Yes, I will. And I’ve already sent it on to my son, who is a marvelous cook!
What an interesting blend: hummus and guacamole. I’ll have to try this. 🙂
…and the balsamic vinegar gives it a lovely kick!
Definitely up for giving this a try! Thank you!
You’re welcome 🙂
Don’t know how it tastes but I love the name!!!
It tastes fresh and a bit zingy with the balsamic vinegar added 🙂
Like I said in the previous comments, it was either hummamole or guacammus 🙂
Food photos make me hungry! I love both of those dips/spreads on their own so am intrigued to try blending them. I also love the name you have given the dish … hilarious! Thanks!
Well, it was either hummamole or guacammus! LOL
*adds to recipes*
Looks great and healthy as well!!
Hi Paddy – yes, exactly 🙂
You make it look so tasty, Marianne 🙂
It really IS, Paula. Perfect for the summer and so healthy!
Is it good with cucumbers too?
Sure – I think it would be perfect with any vegetables.
I love your recipes. Have had the pleasure of your cooking !!! Going to try this one as well xx
Oh you’ll love this one, Chris – it’s really fresh and tasty 🙂
looks delicious – really looking forward to trying that out
Let me know what you think, Sandie 🙂
Excellent, marianne… 😉
