Recipe: Herbed Avocado Hummus
½ large ripe avocado
1 15½-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed, drained
⅓ cup tahini, well mixed
¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, finely grated or smashed to a paste with flat side of knife on cutting board
¾ teaspoon (or more) kosher salt
10 cranks freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup cilantro leaves with tender stems
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas; for serving)
Process avocado, chickpeas, tahini, lime juice, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, and 1 cup cilantro in a food processor until smooth, about 1 minute.
With the motor running, stream in 2 Tbsp. oil, then continue to process until hummus is very light and creamy, about 1 minute longer.
Taste and season with salt, if needed.
Tip: Transfer hummus to a shallow bowl. Top with pepitas and cilantro and drizzle with more oil.
