Ingredients

4 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons taheena (see recipe)
1 large or 2 medium avocados
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Pinch cayenne
1/2 teaspoon paprika


Place the lemon juice and taheena in a blender and blend for a moment; then set aside.


Pit and peel the avocados and cut into pieces, then add them with the remaining ingredients — except the paprika — to the lemon juice/taheena mixture and blend into a smooth paste.


Place on a flat serving platter and sprinkle with the paprika.


Can be served as is, or chilled.

Notes

This is a local avocado appetizer in Syria and Lebanon & it's super yummy. I nice appetizer that's easy to make, a real crowd pleaser and will seem like you slaved away in the kitchen for hours.
