Ingredients

  • 1 15-oz BPA-free can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 tbsp za’atar seasoning (TRY: Frontier Za’atar Seasoning)
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1⁄4 tsp each sea salt and ground black pepper
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp chopped shallots
  • 1⁄4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 large avocados
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place chickpeas on a large parchment-lined baking sheet and toss with one-half of the oil and all of za’atar seasoning. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crispy. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together remaining half of oil, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper. Add cucumbers, tomatoes, shallots, cilantro and roasted chickpeas; toss to coat.
  3. Slice avocados in half and remove pits. Fill each half with one-quarter of chickpea mixture. Garnish with chives.

NOTE: If following our Meal Plan, refrigerate remaining filling until called for. Cut avocado just before serving and assemble.
