Avocado & Spinach Hummus - Clémentine's Healthy Meal

Clémentine (blog: Amande & Basilic) shares with us recipes to cook the best healthy meal. We previously posted a drink recipe. Let's continue with the appetizer: Avocado & Spinach Hummus. 

Avocado Hummus

If you are looking for a last minute idea, I would like to introduce a quick and easy recipe: avocado hummus with baby spinach and lime. This recipe doesn’t contain any chickpea like other recipes I already published. Without chickpea, it means this recipe will be even quicker to cook: a raw food recipe.

So, to sum up: the avocado and baby spinach hummus is a raw food recipe, quick and yummy. What else?

Don’t worry if you don’t have all ingredients. You only need the main: avocado, spinach and lime. However, you can easily replace the oilseed puree. You don’t have almonds but you found some nuts? That’s alright, the taste will be slightly different but it will still be nice. If you only have a can of chickpea, that’s fine too. Likewise, if you don’t have all the seeds listed, just use other seeds or nuts.

As you can notice, I share my version of the avocado hummus, baby spinach and lime, but you can easily adapt it to your tastes or what you have at home.
