Pantry hummus

The main ingredients are readily available in the pantry and fridge.
After a whirl in the food processor, more garlic, oil and some sumac to taste.

This is a really basic hummus that is easy to whip up from pantry staples. Prepared hummus is readily available in the grocery, but $4 for 10 ounces is pricey considering how easy it is to make at home. A few years ago, Linda McCartney's On Tour vegetarian cookbook gave me the idea of adding avocado to my hummus. Her recipe includes yogurt, which I leave out. The avocado makes it creamy and a beautiful shade of green.

The magic ingredient that elevates this hummus from humdrum to yum yum....avocado!

Someone couldn't wait for me to take the beauty shot before digging in....
