Easy Avocado Chickpea Salad

(serves 2-3)


●     1 x 14 oz/400 g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

●     1 medium ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and mashed

●     1 cup/150 grams cherry tomatoes, halved

●     Juice of 1 medium lemon juice

●     Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped

●     Optional: 5 oz/150 grams of canned tuna in water, drained

●     Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed avocado with the lemon juice. Stir in the chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, and tuna if using. Toss in the cilantro. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and black pepper. Eat and enjoy!


Make-Ahead Tip: You can prep the chickpeas (or tuna), tomatoes, and cilantro in advance. Just add the avocado and lemon juice when you're ready to eat. This will keep 2-3 days in the fridge.
