This hummus is a great option, throw a few crackers and some sliced carrots and cucumber on a plate and you have a superb snack or appetiser to serve.
You can’t go wrong with a recipe that’s simple, yummy and incredibly healthy! Because of the lemon juice in the recipe, the avocado doesn’t discolour for hours, so you can make this ahead of time and keep it in the fridge in a covered container for a few hours before you serve it. Just give it a stir when you take it out the fridge and it’ll be A ok.
