Prep time:

For former "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Heather Dubrow and her plastic surgeon husband, Terry Dubrow, this hummus recipe is a real crowd-pleaser. Made from avocados, it's their youngest daughter Coco's favorite snack, and pairs nicely with chips or as a spread on wraps and sandwiches.


    • 2 avocados, halved and pitted
    • 1/2 cup tahini
    • 1/4 cup hulled sunflower seeds
    • 1 teaspoon minced shallot
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro sprigs
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/2 cup olive oil


1. Scoop the avocado flesh into a food processor. Add the tahini, sunflower seeds, shallot, lemon juice, cilantro, salt, cumin and pepper. Puree until well-blended. 

2. With the machine running, stream in the oil and continue blending until smooth. Add water if necessary to loosen the consistency. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
