Test Kitchen Tips

If you don’t have avocado oil on hand, olive oil works just as well.

To make homemade pita chips, brush both sides of pitas with oil, then cut into wedges. Arrange pita wedges on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt, and bake at 450° until golden, 5–7 minutes.


Mince pepitas and garlic in a food processor. Add chickpeas, avocado, parsley, lemon juice, and oil; process until smooth, 12 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl, then season with salt and pepper.

Transfer hummus to a serving dish; drizzle with oil and top with pepitas. Serve hummus with vegetables or pita chips.
