Chickpea Avocado Salad

This Smashed Avocado Chickpea Salad Is Bursting With Protein

You want an easy lunch that's healthy and filling, right? Look no further than this zesty avocado chickpea salad, bursting with fresh dill, lemon, celery, cucumbers, and carrots. Even though it's served on just half an English muffin, you'll feel satisfied until dinner because it's full of fiber and protein. It throws together in less than 10 minutes, and you can even make a batch ahead of time to have a few days' worth of meals all ready when hunger strikes.



You'll fall hard for those tender smashed chickpeas, the creamy avocado, and those crunchy salted sunflower seeds. Plus this "chicken" salad is mayo-free, so aside from being vegan, it's low in cals and saturated fat. Topped with the subtle sweetness of cherry tomatoes, this is the perfect lunch to whip up when you're short on time but have a hankering for something truly savory and delicious.
