Smashed Chickpea Avocado Salad Sandwich Recipe

smashed chickpea avocado salad sandwich on whole grain bread

This delicious smashed chickpea and avocado salad is a sustainable, plant-based option reminiscent of tuna salad! (vegan, nut-free, gluten-free)




  1. In a large bowl, mash chickpeas and avocado together with a potato masher or fork. I like to leave it a little bit chunky, but you can make it as smooth as you like.
  2. Add lemon juice, green onion, dill. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
  3. Store in the refrigerator, covered, until ready to serve.
  4. When you’re ready to make the sandwiches, scoop the avocado mixture onto each of 6 slices of bread. Top with remaining slices.


Smashed chickpea avocado salad can be made up to a day in advance. Squeeze fresh lemon over the top before covering and storing to prevent avocado from browning.
