I would say that this will be the last time that I share a smashed chickpea recipe with you, but that would probably be a big lie! I’m sorry, I just can’t help making smashed chickpea salads. They are filling, take 2 minutes to make and taste awesome with avocados. Win! Win! Win!
Raise your hand if you like summer lunches that take a long time to make and require more than one bowl. I didn’t think any of you liked those things, haha! The first time I made smashed chickpea salad was when I made a Greek version and at it in a sandwich. I honestly couldn’t believe I had never eaten it before. All you do is smash the chickpeas with a potato mashed and add a bunch of seasonings and either some tahini or avocado and it comes together so nicely.
These hot summer days, I always make sure to have a few cans of chickpeas on hand for those days when I’m really unmotivated to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but I want something filling and delicious 🙂Print
