One of the easiest ways to save money on food is to cook in season. Food that is in season will be at it’s lowest price for the year. For example, right now things like citrus, avocados, broccoli and fixings for soup are in season.
I love avocados and I found a Southwestern Turkey Soup recipe that calls for avocado. This recipe is fantastic as it can be adapted in many ways. Since I have leftover turkey, it is a perfect fit this week.

Avocado is one of my favorite foods, and finding new ways to eat it always makes me happy! I’ve really been into hummus lately so I thought why not combine 2 of my favorite things and make an awesome Avocado Cilantro Quick Hummus Recipe? It’s got a great flavor; it is really fresh and only takes about 5 minutes to make!
1 can chickpeas (drained)
2 avocados from Mexico
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp Tahini
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tsp garlic
First, open and drain your chickpeas and add them to a blender (or food processor). Next, cut open the avocados and remove the seed. Scoop out the avocado flesh and add in to the chickpeas in the blender. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender.
Blend until smooth. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
That’s it! Easy, right? Now all you have to do is grab some dippers. You can eat it with carrots, celery, red peppers, or broccoli. It goes great on pita chips, pretzel thins, and tortilla chips. We like it on bagels and sandwiches too. Since we are talking about all those vegetables, did you know that an avocado is a fruit? It is actually a single seeded berry. How is that for a bit of trivia?
