In this video, my sister Cat and I, along with our mom, invent Hummacado (avocado Hummus).

Watch WITH MY SISTER CAT: Hummacado (Avocado Hummus).

As promised, here’s the Hummacado recipe from the video.

Hummacado

1 can garbanzos, rinsed and drained
1-2 cloves garlic, peeled
1-2 teaspoons ground cumin
1-2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil (must be the Asian variety which is very flavorful)
1 large bunch cilantro, washed and coarsely chopped
Touch of cayenne
1 avocado, peeled and mashed
Salt to taste
Juice of 1 large lemon or lime

For Hummacado Floaters: Napa Cabbage leaves, cut in half (or leave whole for extra large floaters)

Drop garlic cloves in a whirring Cuisinart (use the regular blade). It will instantly be finely chopped. Add lemon juice, garbanzos, cumin, sesame oil, cayenne, and cilantro. Whir until it looks like guacamole. Remove from Cuisinart and place in bowl. Add the mashed avocado and add salt to taste.

Alternatively, to make just Hummus, leave out the avocado.

To Serve as Floaters

Spread on the middle of the Napa cabbage leaves and serve on a pretty platter. You may also serve the Hummacado with crackers, raw vegetables, torn flat bread, or use it as a spread on sandwiches.

The sesame oil gives the flavor of Tahini (a common ingredient) without so many calories, and is actually much more flavorful.
