Avocado Hummus

I haven’t met a hummus I didn’t love. Last weekend I made avocado-hummus.

Those were baby avocados that I got at the local produce store near my house.  They were 4/$1, how cute is that!

I let the hummus blend in the food processor for longer than usual.  It resulted in creamier hummus.  Or maybe that was due to the avocados. Either way, I recommend blending for about 3-5 minutes.

I am a huge fan of making random salads  with all different kinds of combinations and making enough to last a few meals.  I think I started this when I read Tosca Reno’s, Eat-Clean Diet Cook Book.  Which by the way, it is my favorite cook book!  I have picked up a lot of my ideas from this book.  I have made many of the recipes as they are written and changed them as well.  Mostly, I go by the guidelines but then use what I have at the time.  For example, I made her tofu salad Monday night.  Only it was completely different than the one shown.

This salad had brown rice, grilled tofu, kidney beans, corn, red onion, red bell pepper, and steamed brussel sprouts.  For the dressing, I mixed lime juice, dijon mustard, honey, olive oil and non-fat yogurt.  It was tasty! Plus it made enough for dinner and lunch twice.  The second day having it for lunch, I had it in a whole wheat tortilla with the last of the avocado hummus.  Left overs are wonderful, I tell you!

I have a confession to make.  I have been reading the Twilight series.  Normally, I would not be interested.  In fact, I have thought it all seemed silly and could not grasp why so many of you bloggers wouldn’t stop talking about it!  Well, my best friend told me I was crazy for not giving the books a try and that they were amazing stories.  So, I finally gave in.  I am half way through New Moon and ………………………….I LOVE IT!  I think I will sit out back and read for a bit. It is June and still rainy, cloudy and dark in Portland!! :( only up side to that, is it makes for the perfect surrounding to read the books, if ya know what I mean. ;)
