  1. Put the avocado, chickpeas, garlic, lemon zest and juice in a food processor and whizz together until it forms a chunky consistency. Spoon into a bowl, season and stir in the tomatoes.

  2. Drizzle the onion and mushroom with the oil and sprinkle over the fajita seasoning. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and cook the onion for 2 mins on each side, then remove from the pan and keep warm. Cook the mushrooms for 2 mins on each side or until softened and turning golden in places.

  3. Spread some of the avocado hummus down the middle of each wrap and top with the mushrooms and onions. Add shredded lettuce and a dash of Tabasco, if you like, and wrap up.

One of the best meals I’ve eaten and made since starting uni. I didn’t have a blender so I didn’t use chickpea and mashed the avocado by hand . But amazing!

Rated this 3 stars as the mushroom, onion and fajita mix filling were great, but the houmous was terrible. I've made it twice now, hoping I'd like it better the second time, but unfortunately not. I would have this again, but will serve with homemade guacamole instead, and add a tin of chickpeas to the filling to bulk out.

Try it without chickpeas, it’s delicious! Just mash or blend the avocado.

I must have made this wrong, houmous was awful! Mushrooms and onion were okay, edible if combined, otherwise, skip this one!

Something doesn't seem right about the calorie count on this one. It uses 4 tortillas so presumably 4 fajitas, but there is no way there are 824 calories per fajita in that case, and I don't even think it can be 824 calories per serving (2 fajitas if this serves two as suggested). I reckon there are about 300 calories in an avocado, and 280 in a tin of chickpeas, the rest is fruit and veg which will have a very low count.

Great recipe for #meatlessmonday. Tomato is out of season here right now, so I substituted in two spoons of tomato salsa. Will definitely make again! Served 2 adults and 1 child.

can you make a batch of avocado houmus and freeze it for later?
