Five minutes and six ingredients is all you need to make this healthy Avocado Chickpea Salad.
If you have followed me for a while, then this won’t new news to you, so I’m sorry for repeating myself. However, for those of you who are new here to the blog, I used to own a coffee shop/café and welcome, thanks for stopping by! You can read more about that in my Confessions of a Former Coffee Shop Owner post, if you would like.
The top-selling bread recipe at the shop was the Vegan Peanut Butter Banana muffins I shared with you. Today I’m sharing one of the lunch favorite from the menu, which also happens to be a Vegan recipe.
Avocado Chickpea Salad
This Avocado chickpea Salad was the result of experimenting in hopes of creating a suitable vegan tuna salad. I put it on the board as a temporary summer special and it quickly became the most popular lunch item. It ended up having a permanent home on the menu.
Meat eaters and non meat eaters are blown away when they try this. By mashing six ingredients together you get this velvety concoction bursting with bright flavor, that’s just so freakin good!
This is not a tuna salad wanna be, this is way better. In my opinion this avocado chickpea salad whoops tunas ass in every way. It is superior in texture and taste, It smells a whole lot better, and doesn’t look like something the cat threw up.
(I’m not knocking tuna, I love it, but come on… I can’t be the only on who thinks it kinda looks like cat food.)
Make this meal in 5 minutes flat for a perfectly balanced meal. You can make this avocado chickpea salad in advance so it’s the perfect picnic or lunch box recipe. Serve it as a sandwich, wrap, pita, on crackers or a bed of greens either way its amazing.
