Smashed Chickpea and Avocado


  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of shallot, finely minced
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons greek yogurt
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place your drained and rinsed chickpeas in a medium bowl and add the meat of your avocado, discarding the seed and skin
  2. Using a fork or a potato masher, mash the chickpeas and avocado together until the mixture has come together but is still slightly chunky (exact smoothness will depend on your preference)
  3. To this, stir in your greek yogurt, shallot, and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper


You can eat this plain, on a sandwich or wrap, or as a dip for veggies or pita chips! I think it is yummy with some red pepper flakes sprinkled over top.
