Avocado toast is a fast breakfast, and with this addition of chickpeas, it’s also the delivery system for lots of protein and fiber, not to mention iron, zinc, folate, and potassium (found in all legumes). You could prepare the whole can of chickpeas at once and have the topping ready for 4 servings.
Makes: 1 serving
Prepare the chickpea topping by mashing the following ingredients together with a fork, pastry blender, or potato masher. You’re going for a coarse mash, not a smooth texture.
- 3/8 cup canned chickpeas (drained and rinsed) (1/4 of a can)
- ½ Tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Pinch of red pepper flakes
Toast two slices of bread.
- Two slices thin-slice whole grain bread
Spread a quarter of an avocado on each slide of toast.
- Half of a ripe avocado
Spread the chickpea topping over the avocado and enjoy.
