Zingy Avocado Humous

Humous, what so many of us love, is so simple to put together, yet for some reason we don't find the time to do it. We've got to do something about that! Here's a zingy version, packed with good fats and proteins, and boy does it taste good too!

Zingy Avocado Humous
(Serves 4, about 135 calories each)

300g tin chickpeas (180g drained)
1 fat garlic clove, roughly chopped
1 ripe medium-sized avocado, a 175g flesh, roughtly chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Salt & black pepper to taste

- Simply prepare all your ingredients and toss them into a tall bowl or measuring jug.

- Use a stick blender to whizz smooth until it has the texture you prefer. Season to taste and serve with whatever you want! I had run out of pita bread, and so I added it to my steak dinner!

Don't forget to pop the avocado stone back into the humous! That will prevent the avocado from going that brownish colour!
