This vibrant green hummus recipe couldn't be easier—just toss a few ingredients in the food processor and whir away! Aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas) and avocado make this healthy dip extra smooth and creamy. Serve with veggie chips, pita chips or crudités.

WOW! I really like this recipe. I had a roasted avocado to add and I would remove the charred areas next time. This is so good with raw veggies.

If plain hummus and guacamole had a baby it would this hummus! It's really easy to make and a nice twist on two of my favorite dips!
