Our favorite lunch! This easy, healthy Chickpea Avocado Mash with Lemon only takes 5 minutes to whip up – and no cooking! (Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)
I wasn’t always on the avocado train. But now? Woop woop! I’m all aboard. And this is the recipe that turned me. One bite and you’ll see chickpeas and avocado were meant to be together. I like to keep it deliciously simple with just 3 ingredients: chickpeas, avocado, and lemon. It’s healthy, filling, and comes together in 5 minutes. Our perfect lunch! Usually my daughter and I grab a couple spoons and eat it right out of the bowl til it’s gone 😉 But you can eat it with crackers, on top of flatbreads, in pitas, or as a sandwich, etc. This also works great as a base recipe to play around with other flavors and add-ins you love. I’ve made a cilantro-lime version which is great as well!
