Avocado Hummus

PI have been craving a vegetable based sandwich for a few weeks;I know it sounds odd, but it's what I wanted.  A restaurant near my job had something that was interesting, if I'm being kind, but bad on delivery.  Too many flavors and ingredients that didn't match up well.  Anyway I finally got to make something closer to what I wanted today. The highlight though was the avocado hummus.

A colleague read this post the other day and asked for the recipe, so I'm posting.

Avocado Hummus
1 15.5 oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 small avocados
1 clove of garlic minced
Juice of ½ lemon
1/3 cup Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste.
Put all ingredients in in a food processor and process until smooth.
If needed add more Olive oil and/or lemon juice for taste and smoothness.
If you don’t have fresh garlic you can substitute garlic powder.
*Most hummus recipes call for tahini, you can use a small amount of sesame seeds or peanut butter if you want a nutty taste, I don’t find that I need it.
Use as dip or spread
Veggie sandwich:
You favorite bread, veggies of choice. 
I used cucumbers, tomatoes, and baby romaine.
