Chickpea Avocado Mash with Lemon
This easy, healthy chickpea mash only takes 5 minutes to prepare. So simple & satisfying! Great as a sandwich spread, dip, or on salads.
- 15 oz. can chickpeas (or 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas)
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon, or more to taste)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1-2 Tbsp. hummus, a couple shakes of garlic powder, fresh herbs, etc.
Rinse and drain chickpeas and place in a medium bowl. Mash with a potato masher or strong fork. (Mash thoroughly for a smoother consistency, or not as much for chunky texture.)
Cut avocado in half and remove pit and peel. Place avocado flesh in bowl. Add lemon juice, salt/pepper, and any other desired additions.
Mash again to combine. Serve immediately or refrigerate covered for 2-3 days.
Serving: Enjoy as a dip with veggies, crackers, or chips, or on a sandwich with your favorite toppings. It's also great in lettuce wraps, on salad, or spread on flatbreads.
