Avocado Chickpea Salad

I’ve recently rediscovered the amazing qualities of single-bowl cooking. You know those recipes that you can just take and dump all the ingredients in? No worries about the order, no hefty cleanup. *Sigh* yes, this is how college cooking can be.

So, though I’ve got a mean recipe for a special tuna salad (which I’ll be sure to publish ASAP), I decided to expand my horizons. The original recipe for this dish can be found here.

Skill Level: So easy a college student could do it

Amazingly, this recipe yielded enough for 2 sandwiches and I’m psyched for the leftovers.


  • If you’re like me and feel like every day is a Monday, then don’t worry about when you forget the Greek yogurt. It tastes just as good without (but I might go back and add some later to the leftovers just for the experience).

  • 1 cup of chickpeas
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • As much cilantro as you’d like
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Your favorite bread

  2. Mash.
  3. Spread on bread.
