A healthy hummus to spread on pitta bread or with your favourite vegetables.

Remember to wash your hands thoroughly!

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 400g can chick peasCorina Coriander, leaves and flowers. Coriander is full of vitamins and nutrients. Try this easy Avocado and Coriander Hummus.
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 – 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • A handful fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 4 tortilla wraps

You will also need:

  • An apron
  • A chopping board
  • A sharp knife (to use with an adult)
  • A colander
  • A blender
  • A tablespoon
  • A plastic lemon squeezer

Method:

  1. Cut the limes in half and squeeze all the juice out.Avocado is full of nutrients so a good fruit for children. Try this Avocado and Coriander Hummus recipe.
  2. Open, drain and wash the chick peas.
  3. Mix together chick peas, olive oil, tahini and lime juice in food processor until smooth.
  4. Cut the avocados in half, peel them by inserting the spoon between the flesh and the outer skin. Then cut the flesh into pieces.
  5. Add the avocados and mix until smooth and creamy.
  6. Snip the coriander and stir into the mixture.
  7. Use it as a dip or spread onto your favourite bread.

Avocado and coriander are both very good for you. They are full of vitamins and minerals. Avocado has a lovely creamy texture.

If you would rather not use a food processor you could use a pestle and mortar. This would mean the hummus will be thicker and chunkier but just as tasty!

  1. Mmm! This sounds lovely, I don’t usually like hummus but the addition of the advocado makes it sound like guacamole, gonna give this a try! Thanks for sharing 🙂 #toddlerapprovedtuesday

  2. We LOVE avocado in our house. Always looking for new ways to use them, and this recipe looks absolutely scrumptious! I love light, fresh snack options, so I will totally be trying this one. Thanks for sharing! <3 #KCACOLS

  3. This looks like a lovely recipe! Although, none of my kids are avocado fans but perhaps if I get them involved in preparing it, they might give it a try 🙂 Thanks for sharing. #KCACOL

  4. This looks delicious! I love the addition of coriander – majorly one of my favourite herbs – a great easy to follow recipe – my daughter loves to cook so am going to get her to make this for sure so thank you for sharing #KCACOLS

  5. OMG AMAZE. This is all my favourite things in a hummus! I love avocado and coriander, and obviously love chickpeas and hummus, so this is a fab recipe. Only problem is, I got rid of my blender when I moved house a few months back, and am now blenderless. I do have a mortar and pestle though so can try with that. #KCACOLS

  6. This just sounds delicious avocado is one of my favourites as is coriander. However we don’t keep hummus in the house as Monkey has a sesame allergy. Which is a real shame as its such a great snack food with veg! Thank you for joining us at #BloggerClubUK hope to see you again this week x

    1. Oh dear! It’s a shame that children have so many allergies. I have no idea how it would taste without tahini – might be worth a try?

  7. This looks like a great recipe, although I’m not keen on coriander. Its the one herb that I just cant quite seem to get used to the taste of. However, I might just give this a go and omit the coriander as it would be quite nice to try 🙂 Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Emily

  8. This looks like a healthy dippy option! I am always looking for ways to encourage healthy snacking so this would be perfect to go with cut up veg! Thanks for sharing on #YumTum this week 🙂 x
