Ingredients


1/3 cup cubes Avocado (pureed)
1 tsp Lemon juice
1 cup slices Red bell pepper (or yellow)
2 tbsp Hummus

Instructions


  1. To remove the avocado skin:  Cut into the avocado lengthwise until you hit the pit.  Rotate the knife around the entire pit until you have two halves.  Carefully hit the pit with the knife until it punctures it.  Turn the knife to pop out the pit.  Push a spoon between the avocado and the skin and carve the avocado out of its skin.  Discard the skin.
  2. Slice a lemon into quarters.  Hold a quarter over a bowl and press into it with a fork to squeeze out the juice.  Fill one teaspoon with the juice.  Set aside.
  3. Slice the red pepper lengthwise into 1 cm with slices.  Set aside.
  4. Chop the avocado into 1 cm cubes.  Fill a dry 1/3 cup measure with them.
  5. Add avocado to a food processor.  Pulse until smooth.
  6. Scoop avocado into medium bowl.  Add the hummus and the lemon juice.  Mix well.
  7. Use the pepper slices to dip.


Enjoy!
