4 servings

  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas or garbanzo beans (I use Bush's Garbanzo Beans)
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 3 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 2 Tablespoons sweet hot mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped green onion

  • sea salt and ground pepper to taste
  • bread for sandwiches ( I used whole wheat bread )
  • lettuce, shredded carrots and tomato (optional sandwich toppings)
  • * Bacon is optional

1) Rinse and drain chickpeas. To remove skins, place chickpeas in a medium bowl with water. Agitating the beans in your hands to release the skins. Place skinned chickpeas in another medium bowl, discard water and skins.

Add avocado to bowl with chickpeas. Using a potato masher or fork smash chickpeas and avocado together. Add in relish, mustard, green onion, lemon juice, dill weed and celery. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Stir everything together.

Serve on bread. I used multi-grain bread and topped it with lettuce, shredded carrots and sliced tomatoes.
