  • Add cannellini beans, avocado, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, salt and hot sauce to the bowl of a food processor.
  • Begin processing on low speed.
  • While processing, slowly add 1 tablespoon of the extra virgin olive oil. 
  • Continue processing until smooth and creamy and no chunks remain. You may have to stop to scrape down the sides. Add more olive oil if needed. Keep processing until hummus has a smooth consistency.
  • Enjoy immediately or refrigerate to firm up a little more. Garnish with crushed red pepper flakes before serving.
