Avocado Chickpea Sandwich
  • 2 slices Wheat bread (4 if you want 2 slices per sandwich instead of open-faced)
  • 1 Avocado, sliced
  • 1 thin slice of red onion
  • Handful of sprouts of your choice
  • 1 can or less of chickpeas or garbanzo beans
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • Salt to taste
  • About 8 thin slices of cucumber
  1. Put about half of the can of chickpeas / garbanzo beans in a food processor or blender along with the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. (If you want to have leftovers for sandwiches later, you can use the whole can). Blend just a few seconds. I like when it’s chunky, but you can blend it longer if you prefer it to be smoother.
  2. On a slice of toasted bread, smear some of the chickpea mixture. Add 4 slices cucumber, some of the red onion, sprouts and lastly avocado slices on top. Add a squirt of fresh lemon juice and voila!
