Chickpea-Avocado-Salad – Perfect for Late Summer Days (Recipe)

Chickpeas – superheroes on our plates

The chickpea belongs to the legume family and is mainly used in oriental and Mediterranean cuisine. Two of the meals that top my list of possible hangman meals are hummus and falafel – soon there will be recipes. I could really bathe in that. In addition, chickpeas are low in fat and at the same time rich in protein and fiber. On 100g they bring about 20g of protein, that’s quite a lot! Plus, they are just full of antioxidants, magnesium, iron, zinc, and copper. We also take up vitamin K, E, and vitamins of the B group (B1, B6, and folic acid B9) through their consumption. Thousands of reasons to include them more often in our diet!

Delicious, not only in summer

Especially on hot summer days I do not really crave heavy, hearty food. I’m a big fan of salads anyway and could eat a salad every day. In all variations. Hot, cold, as the main course, as a side dish. The most important thing is freshness. It sounds like my delicious chickpea and avocado salad is just the right decision! It is very easy to prepare and just yummy. The recipe is completely variable according to your wishes. If you need more than 5 minutes, then you have already dawdled! 😉

Bayern würden hier vollkommen zurecht behaupten: "A Schmankerl!" ;)

Alternatives

Alternatively, you can also add some arugula or chicory, if you are a little more hungry. Kidney beans also fit perfectly. And as a substitute to mint, you can also use parsley or coriander. Alternatively, you can simply halve the avocados and fill them with the chickpeas and tomatoes and then just spoon them up. Or do you still have leftovers in the fridge? Bring it on! There are no limits to your creativity! 😉

Chickpeas in many variants

As you can imagine, chickpeas match perfectly in many dishes. You can also enjoy them as a super delicious alternative to chips. All you have to do is roll over the pre-cooked chickpeas (either homemade or from the jar) in a mixture of olive oil and your favorite spices. The Mediterranean and oriental spices such as paprika, cumin, coriander or even sesame are best suited. After about half an hour at 180 degrees in the oven, turn them over, again and again, the small delicacies are ready to eat. You should never consume chickpeas raw. Only by cooking, the toxic substance Phasin can be removed, which makes them unattractive to raw foodies.

So, get to the boil, swing the wooden spoon and tell me where the chickpea appears on your menu! 🙂 Enjoy your meal!
