Smashed Chickpea Avocado Salad

This avocado chickpea mixture isn’t just for sandwiches but I was really craving soup and sandwich today for some reason, so that’s where mine ended up. However, it’s just as good in a wrap or on its own as a salad.

For bread, we use Silver Hills Bakery sprouted grain bread at my house. It’s a local BC brand that uses ingredients I can feel good about, their breads are also vegan which can’t be said of many typical highly-processed breads you’ll find in the grocery store.

Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwich Recipe

For this sandwich, I heaped a generous portion of chickpea-avo mix between two toasted pieces of Silver Hills Bakery Squirrelly Bread and topped with lettuce, cucumber and a little dijon mustard. A slice of fresh tomato would also be delicious in there, but feel free to throw on any of your favourite toppings. Oooo, sprouts would have been good too!! Someone try that for me!

Make It Your Way

Cumin and lime is just one way to change up this delicous smashed chickpea and avocado mixture. Here are a few other variations of smashed chickpea avocado salads!

  • vegan mayonnaise, diced celery and red onion
  • chopped pickles, lemon and onion
  • sriracha sauce, cilantro and red onion
  • green onion, lemon and dried cranberries

Those are just a few quick ideas. You can either use avocado or vegan mayonnaise to make smashed chickpea salad, from there, feel free to add in your favourite ingredients and make it your own!
