Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Salad Sandwich | Lunch

Updated: Apr 28, 2020

If bread isn’t your thing (or you’ve run out of it), this fantastic sandwich can also be put in lettuce or collard green wrap for a quick raw gluten-free option. This is just one of the go-to meals that I take to work. Easy to prepare and satisfying. You can experiment with different fillings and alternatives. This simple recipe is inexpensive, easy to make, and packed with protein to keep you going through a long day.


1 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed, drained, and skinned

1 large, ripe avocado

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 Tbsp. chopped green onions

Juice of 1 lime

Salt and pepper, to taste

Bread of your choice

Sandwich toppings (we used lettuce and tomato)


  • In a medium bowl, mash the chickpeas and avocado together using a fork or large spoon.

  • Add in the cilantro, green onions, and lime juice and stir

  • Season with salt and pepper.

  • Spread onto bread and top with your favourite sandwich toppings.

Makes 3 to 4 servings
