Home-made Hummamole Dip


hummamole 005

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.

Fresh veg for the dip

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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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*

  6. 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 🙂

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

I´d love to hear from you, and much appreciate your comments. Thank you.
