Hummole - Is it Hummus or is it Guacamole?

I got this recipe quite some time ago from the co-op where I frequently shop - Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville, MN.

Being in line with my other favorites, it is:  fast, easy, delicious, healthy, and nutritious.  Hummole is packed with protein, fiber, and good fats.

You may be wondering if it tastes more like hummus or guacamole. It is much closer in taste to guacamole than hummus.  Think of it as Power Guacamole!  Added fiber and protein are a benefit to this recipe over traditional guacamole. 

Avocado and Chickpeas - the best of both worlds!

Hummole from Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville

16 oz cooked chickpeas (if using canned, don't forget to rinse beans)
1 avocado
3/4 jalapeno
1 clove garlic
juice of one lemon

Blend all in food processor until creamy.  Makes a great veggie dip.

Could it be easier?

While I do love this recipe as is, feel free to change it up a bit.  Here are a few things I have done to this recipe:  add a little sea salt, switch out the lemon juice for lime juice, add a little evoo, use a little chipotle for a smokey flavor.

What is Caleb eating in the bowl?  CHILI!  Be sure to check out that recipe too!


  1. You rock. Period. Can't wait to try it!

  2. Great! I have beans and I have 2 avocados ripening up. Thanks.

  3. Much to my daughters' dismay, I do not like avocados. We found a triple layer hummus from Trader Joe's that everyone is crazy about.

    Right now Emily is making us healthy shrimp tacos for dinner. Mmmmm!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I fianlly made your fruit dip today & now a veggie dip..I am behind! :) Looks yummy though! I made the cookies too! I figured as long as I was chopping nuts :)
