  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 2 celery stalks chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed

Sandwich Topping Suggestions:

  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Sprouts
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots


  • Rinse and drain chickpeas and pour into a mixing bowl.
  • Cut avocado lengthwise and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scoop into the bowl.
  • Mash with the back of a fork or a potato masher until desired consistency is reached. I like mine with some larger chunks still intact.
  • Mix in celery, dill, paprika, salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
  • Spread onto bread and add desired toppings.
