Simple and easy chickpea spread

Hummus is great as dip for veggies or crackers or a spread on wraps. I love making this thicker chickpea spread recipe for my kids to pile high into cucumber volcanoes or just to use as a regular dip. 

chickpea spread recipe


1 can chickpeas

1 cup sunflower seeds (or pumpkin seeds)

½ avocado diced

3 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. lemon juice

½ tsp. garlic puree

Optional: for a more traditional hummus taste you can add in 1-3 Tbsp. of tahini


Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Serve with your favourite crackers or veggies or spread the hummus onto a wrap for a quick and easy lunch.

Storage note: If you will not be using the chickpea spread the day you make it store it in an airtight container with the avocado pit inside to reduce browning.
