Layered Avocado and Hummus Dip

Layered Avocado and Hummus Dip

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Course: Salads & Sides


  • 2 cups chick peas; dried and cooked, or canned (drained and rinsed well)
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 - 2 cloves garlic (to taste)

Layered Dip

  • 1 cup hummus (or more depending on size of bowl)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 - 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, basil, or cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat feta (optional)



  • Chop garlic into small pieces. Place garlic, chick peas, lemon juice, water, and tahini in a food processor and process until smooth. Add spices, oil, and mix. Drizzle with more olive oil for longer keeping.

Layered Dip:

  • In a decorative bowl or Pyrex pan, layer the hummus to cover the bottom. In a separate bowl, mix the avocado with lime juice and mash until smooth, then layer on top of the hummus. Top with salsa – enough to cover avocado. Sprinkle with goat feta and chopped herbs. Serve with rice crackers, rye crisps, toasted spelt pitas, or vegetable crudités.
