Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas or garbanzo beans (I use Bush's Garbanzo Beans)
    1 large ripe avocado
    1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped green onion
    Juice from 1 lime
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    Bread of your choice (I use whole wheat bread)
    Fresh spinach leaves or other sandwich toppings: lettuce, tomato slices, sprouts, etc.

Tips

Nutrition information is based on filling alone, not including bread.


Directions

1. Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Place on a paper towel and remove the outer skins. You can leave them on, but I like to remove them.

2. In a medium bowl, using a fork or potato masher smash the chickpeas and avocado together. Add in cilantro, green onion, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

3. Spread salad on bread and top with your favorite sandwich toppings. I like to add fresh spinach leaves.

Note: This salad also makes a great dip. Serve with cut up veggies, crackers, or pita chips. Also, this salad is best eaten the day it is made because it will turn brown due to the avocado.

Serving Size: 3-4 servings
