Smashed Chickpea Avocado Spread is by far my favorite sandwich spread of all time. Something about the flavors of lime, avocado, and cilantro just thrills my taste buds.
The fact that it takes less than 10 minutes and only requires a bowl and fork to prepare doesn’t hurt either.
There are so many options for serving this spread–sandwiches, wraps, or even lettuce wraps.
We sometimes stuff endive or other large lettuce leaves with this spread and serve as an appetizer. It’s a great option for those avoiding bread and gluten products.
Every summer, we spend as much time at North Carolina and South Carolina lakes as possible. We enjoy boating, swimming, exploring water falls, and having picnics.
Being out on the water and sandy beaches requires that lunches be simple with foods that can be kept on ice and not require heating.
Our cooler is always packed with sandwiches, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with fresh vegetables, and fresh fruit like mangoes and pears. It is all about keeping it simple and delicious. With these Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwiches, we get both!
When we take picnic lunches anywhere, these are definitely going with us!
