Vegan & Gluten-free spiced avocado chickpea spread!

on 18/11/2014


A few days ago, I invented this lovely spiced avocado chickpea spread! I added some chopped red onions & spiced it up a bit too! How? Just read on,…:)



Recipe: For a lot of spread


1 ripe avocado, cut inti 2 , big stone removed & the flesh scooped out with a large spoon

1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice (15 ml )

1 tablespoon of a fruity extra virgin olive oil (15 ml )

1 red onion, peeled & finely cut up

2 teaspoons spicy smoked paprika ( pimenton picanté )

1 cup of canned chickpeas, rinsed & well-drained

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

20 to 25 grins of smoked sea salt

10 grins finely milled black pepper


1. Add every ingredient to your food processor except the red onions! Mix or blitz until 3/4 smooth! I still like to have  bait of consistency in my spreads, so it is up to you! 😉 Taste! It has to taste smooth with a bit of spice & smokiness! 🙂 If not, adjust the spicing & seas owing to your liking! 

2. To serve! Smear your spread on a lovely slice of fresh spelt bread & top with cherry tomato halves but not too much otherwise the tomatoes overpower the spread ingredients! Keep the rest of the yummy spread in a bowl with fitted lid in the fridge. It will keep for 2 days! Enjoy! xxx

  1. Love the idea of mixing avo and chicpeas. Think I would eat it all with a spoon before it made it to a slice of toast.
    Have a beautiful day Sophie.
