Avocado Chickpea “Tuna” Salad

Yet another wonderful way to use a can of chickpeas! I grew up eating a lot of tuna sandwiches but this is so much tastier and a lot less fishy. There are quite a few chickpea salad recipes out there that use vegan mayo, but I think avocado is the way to go. It’s a healthier option, naturally rich and creamy, and loaded with healthy fats.

In a large bowl, mash the avocado with a fork until creamy. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix, using your fork to crush some of the chickpeas. Add in salt, lemon and freshly ground pepper. Serve with toasted bread.
