Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Lettuce Wraps

IMG_7411Another vegan adventure, another delicious success.  This ‘mixture’ can be used for such a variety of things, not just in lettuce wraps… Put over rice or qunioa to make it more of a topping for a ‘bowl’… put over a bed of spinach to make a hearty salad… or serve with (sturdy) crackers. 

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 avocado
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
1 head of lettuce (romaine or bib)
Optional (and delicious) toppings: vegan sour cream, sliced cherry tomatoes, chopped cilantro, etc.


Add the chickpeas and avocado to a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher or fork until chickpeas are broken up and the avocado is creamy. IMG_7408

Stir in cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.IMG_7409

Add into lettuce leaves and top with desired toppings. (I really loved the vegan sour cream!)
