Chickpea Avocado Salad
Let's be honest. If it's a day that ends in y, I'm having avocado. Usually on toast, but I'm open to suggestions!
In an effort to do the "Meatless Monday" thing, I did some experimenting. Knew the avocado was a go, but also needed a protein. Thus, the chickpeas. The sundried tomatoes that studded the mixture were the perfect tart and chew accompaniment!
You could definitely eat this on its own, but I folded it up in a wrap and added some snap peas and strawberries for a couple of 0 Smartpoint sides!
Chickpea and Avocado Salad
Serves 1 - 4 Smartpoints
1/4 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 small avocado (42 grams)
1 Tbsp. chopped sundried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
Juice of 1/2 of a lime
Salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl, mash the chickpeas to the desired consistency (I left mine a little chunky for some added texture). Add in avocado, tomatoes, lime juice and salt and pepper and mix until combined.
