avocado hummus

1 large ripe avocado
1/2 lb cooked drained chickpeas (save cooking liquid)
6 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons tahini
1-2 garlic clove, crushed
salt to taste

(^.^) Cut avocado in half and remove pit.
(^_^) Scoop out the flesh and place it in a food processor or blender with chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, and a little of the saved cooking liquid.
(^o^) Process until smooth and creamy, adding more liquid if desired.
(^_^) Season with salt to taste and serve garnished with the paprika.

Have to post a picture of the hummus I made from this recipe. I love it !!

I try to store things in glass now days. I heard olive oil leaches the plastic out and not healthy.
