AVOCADO CHICKPEA SALAD SANDWICH
Is there anything more satisfying than an amazing sandwich? Not today, friends, not today – because I am sharing a super scrumptious sandwich recipe with you that I have been drooling over for years now.
I love a simple chickpea salad sandwich, but if you’re seeking even more of a health punch, avocado chickpea salad is incredibly filling and tasty.
Avocados are packed with healthy fats and tons of nutrients. Substitute an avocado for mayo in chickpea salad and you instantly have a nutritious, vegan lunch right between your fingers. It’s the perfect way to incorporate more whole-food-goodness into your diet!
Avocado chickpea salad is super delicious spread on toast or in a whole wheat pita pocket. Or, as a dip for crackers and veggie sticks. Or, just stuck between two pieces of good ol’ bread. So, basically, you can eat this for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, second dinner, midnight snack…
This recipe is very easy to make (especially if you opt for using canned chickpeas).
First, you pulse the chickpeas and avocado together in a blender or food processor. You can also mash them using a fork or potato masher.
Next, mix in lemon juice and spices. I love garlic, onion, basil, salt and pepper in mine. Smoked paprika is also a yummy element to add.
Add your avocado chickpea salad atop some crackers or on a sandwich!
Cucumbers, onions, spinach, arugula, and tomatoes all make yummy additions to this sandwich. My fav combo is cucumbers and spinach, sometimes red onion if I’m feeling it. Cucumbers give you that perfect crunchy bite that I crave on all of my sandwiches (and in my salads, too!)
Or, just eat it plain. It’s full of flavor on its own, too!
