Avocado Toast with Spicy Chickpeas

AVOCADO TOAST WITH SPICY CHICKPEAS

 

I call this a perfect Avo Toast!
Avocado toast is so popular these days and versatile as well. I just love them as well as my kids.
You can make them vegetarian or vegan, or add bacon, chicken, eggs, etc.
I also love using different types of bread for my Avo toast. It all depends on what I got in my kitchen or what I crave at that moment?!

  • What is your favorite AVO TOAST?

The first time I tried avocado was 10 years ago and almost puked, then about 5 years ago I liked it. I don’t know what clicked for me, but all of the sudden I actually like the taste. Same goes for Peanut butter. I hated PB so much, the taste was just awful to me, but now I can eat it with a spoon. To stay on the topic, we eat a lot of avocados in my house, and besides dips and salads, this is how we eat it most of the time especially if it is too ripe.  Do you have food that you hated when you were a child, or even before you actually started liking?

Cheers, everyone, and happy cooking!!!

Ingredients

  • 8 Toast/Bread Slices
  • 1/2 tbsp Unsalted Butter Ghee or Vegan Butter could be used

Avocado

  • 2 Ripe Avocado mashed
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Spicy Seasoning I used Kick'n Chicken by Weber
  • 2 teaspoon Lemon juice Or Lime

Chickpeas

  • 1 can Organic Chickpeas You can cook them yourself as well
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted Butter Vegan butter, Coconut oil/butter or Ghee could be used
  • 1/2 tsp  Organic Tumeric
  • 1/2 tsp. Spicy Seasoning I used Kick' n Chicken by Weber
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon or Lime Juice

Garnish

  • Chopped Parsley

Instructions

  1. Heat a skillet or a frying pan with a bit of butter, then add slices of toast or any bread that you wish to use and toast for a minute or two on both sides until you reach the right (golden) color.
  2. Scoop avocado and mash it, add salt, pepper, seasoning and a generous squeeze of lemon or lime juice. Mix it well and set aside. You may also add garlic if you wish for more garlic taste.
  3. Heat a skillet or saute/frying pan and add butter. Drain chickpeas (reserve chickpeas water or vegan whipped cream). Now add chickpeas to the skillet and add seasonings and lemon or lime juice. Allow it to cook for about 3-5 minutes, mixing it frequently until you reach your desired taste of crunchiness. If you like it softer, stir fry it less, but leave it for up to 5 minutes to really get toasty chickpeas at a medium-high temperature to reach that slight outside crunch and softer inside. I like it that way, but you may cook it more or less. Also, use seasoning to please your own taste. I use more spicy seasoning because I like it, but use just a dash if you do not like it as much.
  4. Now, spread mashed avocado over the toasted bread, add a spoonful or more of spicy chickpeas and garnish it with a bit of chopped parsley.

Recipe Notes

You may use your own seasoning blend: Salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, chili flakes, thyme, parsley, cayenne pepper, etc. Whatever blend suits you as long as it got a bit of heat to it!

LOvE, PEACE, AND ROCK-N-ROLL,
