Avocado Hummus

Any time I watch Giada on Food Network, it's just a matter of time before I hear the words, "mascarpone cheese."  I love the way she says the "mascarpone," and I chuckle because she finds ways to incorporate this cheese into almost any dish, be it sweet or savory.

But has anyone else noticed how she's been cooking a bit healthier lately?  This recipe is adapted from an episode of Giada at Home, during which she made an avocado hummus.

I've made this with the boys and they call it Guacamole Hummus.  With the fresh lemon juice and vinegar, this avocado dip won't turn brown like traditional guacamole.

Avocado Hummus

1 - 15 oz can Canellini Beans, or about 1 3/4 cups cooked Canellini Beans
2 ripe Haas avocadoes
1 large clove garlic, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Gather your ingredients and begin adding them to a food processor:

Process until smooth, adding 1 tablespoon olive oil, and tasting:

If needed, add the second tablespoon of olive oil.  Process again until very smooth.

Enjoy with whatever dippers you choose!

Makes about 3 cups.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
