Avocado Chickpea Spread

This tangy spread is a delicious healthy alternative to chicken salad. Is wonderful spread on bread, in wraps, and even pita sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 1 15-oz canned garbanzo beans drained, rinsed, mashed
  • 1 cup Gardein chicken strips (or precooked chicken strips)
  • 1.5 medium avocado
  • 1 medium green onions sliced small
  • lime juice from 1 large lime
  • salt to taste

Directions

Drain and rinse garbanzo beans, then mash with a fork or run through a food processor until slightly chunky.

In a skillet, brown up "chicken". Use a spray of olive oil, garlic powder, basil, and celery salt. Cut or shred meat into small pieces, then add to a bowl with garbanzo beans.

Add avocado, chopped onion, cilantro and lime juice to chickpeas and chicken. Mix well, then add salt to taste.

 

Spread on a good whole grain bread, inside a whole grain tortilla, or a whole wheat pita pocket.

Tips

In the recipe we used Gardein Chicken Strips because they contain fiber and no cholesterol. Feel free to substitute with real chicken strips, tofu, or garbanzo beans if you'd like.
