Avocado Chickpea Smash

  • 1/2 large ripe avocado (can use remaining half from Wednesday’s lunch)
  • ~1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ⅛-¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • A pinch of red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup chickpeas
  • 2 sliced whole grain bread of choice

Sandwich toppers

  • Kale or arugula (or any other salad greens)
  • Tomato slices


  • Make the Avocado Chickpea Smash: Place the avocado flesh, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Mash with a fork until relatively smooth. Add chickpeas and mash with a fork, but leave some chickpeas whole for texture.
  • Spread avocado smash onto one slice of bread. Top with the sandwich toppers and any other optional toppings, and then with the other slice of bread.



This sandwich is best made morning of, as it helps prevent premature browning of the avocado.
