smashed avocado and chickpea sandwich

Say hello to my favorite lunch.

I normally don’t post our lunches because there usually isn’t a recipe involved. And today is no exception. This isn’t a recipe, but I have been eating this sandwich for a while now and thought it deserved some attention. Besides, sandwiches are the coolest and the possibilities are endless when it comes to your toppings.

This little number featured here is packed with protein and tastes amazing. It frequents our kitchen table regularly around lunchtime.

If you are in a sandwich rut I highly recommend trying this. You don’t have to use the same ingredients I use just try the method. This mixture usually makes 4 sandwiches. Here is what ya do:
Rinse and drain a 14oz can of chickpeas. Pat them dry with a towel. Add them to a bowl with 1 whole avocado (peeled) a large handful of chopped cilantro, a small red onion diced, the juice of one lime, a drizzle of olive oil, a drizzle of your favorite hot sauce (we use siracha) salt and pepper. With the back of a fork or a potato masher mash the whole mixture. Don’t mash too much though, keep it a little clumpy! Spread mixture over a slice of your favorite bread, add some spinach if you’d like and top everything with another slice of bread. Bam! This would also taste awesome with a tahini dressing drizzled on top. Go wild!

I hope you all enjoy this lunchtime favorite of ours.
Off to the lumber yard for some farm supplies.

    PS….love chickpeas in anything, esp. soups and salads.
