Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwich. An easy sandwich to make that’s filling, tasty and healthy.
Prep Time:10 mins
Total Time:10 minutes
1 avocado – pit removed and scooped from peel
2 scallions roughly chopped
1 large handful of parsley
2 oz feta cheese
1 small lemon juiced – about 2 Tbs
15 oz can of chickpeas
2 stalks of celery – diced
Bread for sandwiches – I used toasted sour dough
Cucumber slices and fresh spinach to add to the sandwich as topping.
In a food processor, whirl together avocado, scallion, parsley, feta and lemon. I like mine to be fairly chunky but you can process for a smoother blend if you want.
Add avocado mixture to a bowl.
Add diced celery to the bowl.
Drain and rinse chickpeas. Add chickpeas to a plastic zip lock bag. Smash chickpeas up so about half are smashed and half are whole – I just put the bag on the counter and whacked it with the palm of my hand a few times.
Add smashed chickpeas to bowl with avocado mixture and celery. If you’re planning on picking out any of the loose chickpeas skins this is the time – before you mix it – just pick out the worst offenders if they are bothering you.
Stir everything together.
Serve on bread – I used toasted sour dough and topped it with slices of cucumber and some fresh spinach.
