This Avocado & Tahini Dip is like an avocado hummus. Unlike our Guacamole, which should be chunky, this sauce is smooth. It makes a great dip for pita bread or vegetables.

Preparation

  1. Using a mortar and pestle or food processor, combine the garlic with ½ teaspoon salt, and mash to a smooth paste.
  2. Cut the avocados in half, pit them and scoop out the flesh. Add to the garlic and continue to blend or mash until smooth. Add in the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin and additional salt, to taste.
  3. Serve immediately, or set plastic wrap touching the surface of the dip and refrigerate until ready to use.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cloves garlic, halved
  • Salt, preferably kosher salt, to taste
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3 tablespoons sesame tahini
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, lightly toasted and ground (to taste)
