Protein Packed Avo on Toast

Am I the only one who doesn’t get filled when they have avo on toast?

Well for all of you breakfast and avo lovers I found the perfect solution! Chickpeas!

Adding a 12 oz can of mashed chickpeas to mashed avocado not only adds a protein boost, but extra texture and flavour! This simple addition can spice up this basic but amazing meal!

You can pretty much have anything you can think of as a topping for avo on toast. My go to is always red chili pepper flakes, hemp seeds, and a drizzle of olive oil.

Optional Toppings:

  • Hemp seeds
  • Olive oil
  • Red chili pepper flakes
  • Pesto
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Cilantro

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 slices of sourdough bread
  • 12 oz can of chickpeas
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Lime
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions:

  1. Cut two slices of fresh bread (or store-bought, pre cut) and pre-heat oven 350 degrees F.
  2. Place bread on to baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, flipping half-way through. (If they still aren’t golden or as toasted as you wish you can keep them in for longer.)
  3. When the bread is out of the oven, immediately rub a cut garlic clove on the slice.
  4. In a bowl, mash the chickpeas. When they have been mashed to a flaky texture add the avocado and mash in.
  5. Keep on adding lime, salt, and pepper to the bowl until you get your desired taste.
  6. Put mixture on top of toasted bread and add any desired toppings.

 

I hope that these extra additions add a special touch to your favourite breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack! Just for some more nutrients, I LOVE avo on toast with a fruit salad on the side for a recommendation!
