Did you know that Avocados are one of my favorite things to eat for lunch? Oh yeah. Add hummus to it and now we are on to something. Seriously, if you haven’t tried stuffing an avocado with hummus, you should. They are going to knock your socks off!
Avocados are definitely one of my favorite foods. Although you may not think of avocados as portable, this recipe makes avocados the main ingredient of your lunch. And you know how much I loooooove lunch! I had the opportunity to shoot how I make this recipe with Sabra Hummus today. In this video, you get a little inside look at my life, developing recipes, my kids in the kitchen, and well… a little snapshot about us!
We filmed the video at my parents house, and of course, I took the opportunity to have lunch with my mom. The kids were also around, helping out and being themselves.
Hummus is a really great source of protein. Paired with avocado, which is a source of healthy fat, and fruit, a healthy carb, this lunch covers all bases! Also this lunch is completely grain free, awesome right? Thanks to the MOMables Grain Free Meal Plan I am always coming up with new ideas. One of my favorite things about Sabra hummus is that they offer a variety of flavors. This ensures that my hummus stuffed avocado is never boring! All I do is change up the toppings and voila! new meal.
As you can see in the video, my kids are very involved in the food we create and eat. My youngest kid, G, is the hummus child. He’ll eat it by the spoonful! The middle child, Alex, eats gluten free, so this lunch is great for him.
As you know, the best thing about making healthy food is that it brings the whole family together. What could be better than that?
Hummus Stuffed Avocados
- ¼ cup Hummus
- 1 avocado
- Feta Cheese
- Kalamata olives
- Slice avocado in half, divide, and remove pit.
- With a spoon, stuff each avocado half with hummus, top with feta cheese and chopped kalamata olives.
Stuffed avocados are one of my favorite lunches, and hummus is definitely an great addition! Can’t wait to try it!!
Made these stuffed avocados for lunch today! They were great.
If you are packing these for lunch how do you keep the avocado from turning brown?
Hi Marla, there’s really no way to prevent the exposed avocado part from browning.
I would try squeezing a little fresh lemon juice over the cut avocado halves first, before filling.
