Tahini Avocado Hummus

heart healthy tahini made with avocado oil

Of Aztec origin, for centuries avocados have been valued for their high fat and vitamin content. They were referred to as the “poor man’s butter” by Spanish conquistadors.

Ancient Egyptians thrived on garbanzo beans. They were a favorite food of the pharaohs.

2 tablespoons tahini
