Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwich (Back-to-School/Work Lunch)
This Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwich is loaded with so much delicious flavour! It’s super easy to meal prep and is great for back to school or work lunches!
I have been waiting to share an avocado recipe with you for some time now. What’s a more perfect way than a meal preppable, flavour loaded, sandwich? Well, avocado toast would be equally perfect and GREAT NEWS – you can make this feeling to make that too! This Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwich is going to be a hit for you, friends.
Let’s get down to business. To defeat the hu-…okay but seriously. This is a top class, easy to make, easy to pack and easy to eat sandwich. With back to school season here and a lot of you guys asking for easy lunches, this came immediately to mind. If you’re not going back to school? This makes an ideal work sandwich too. In fact, I have a couple sandwiches that really make the cut for great back to school sandwiches.
So what is smashed chickpea avocado? It’s chickpeas, avocado, and lots of great seasonings literally “smashed” together to create this masterpiece. It’s easily customisable so if you want to add in some spice, or some even add in some chopped onions, you definitely can. Either way, it’s still pretty easy to make. Best part? It doesn’t turn brown. I know you guys worry about that a lot with avocado. Thanks to all the lime in this recipe, it’s safe and sound and green, even up to two days later!! At the same time, since it’s avocado, I would recommend making this probably the night before you need it or even quickly in the AM (smash the other ingredients together, then add the avocado for a quick 2 minute addition). Here are my top points about this sandwich:
- easy to make (no, really)
- solves the avocado crisis (have several ripe avocados at once and can’t eat anymore guac? Try this)
- loaded with lots of healthy fats – will keep you full
- the chickpeas boost the protein content of this recipe – will also keep you full
- Looks so pretty!
I have nothing else to rant about here 🙂 so I’ll let you get to making this. By the way, I love to make mine into a sandwich by just adding some tomatoes, and toasted bread. I recommend if you’re packing this for lunch to use a nice thick and hearty bread. Like I mentioned earlier, you can also turn this into avocado toast the next day (or right away). One slice and you are SET.

This quick recipe is full of flavor and was so filling. This reminds me of the texture of tuna, which was one of my favorite foods when I wasn’t a vegan. I absolutely loved this and will be making it again!
