Spicy Chickpea Avocado Toast

This Spicy Chickpea Avocado Toast is crispy, savory and flavorful. It is super easy to make and can be made gluten free.

I am not kidding when I say toast is one of my favorite foods. I like to eat it for breakfast, dessert, midday snack and pretty much whenever I am feeling the toast craving. One of the reasons that I eat it so often is for the different topping choices. One day I can have sweet toast with peanut butter and jam where the next savory with tomato avocado and balsamic. The topping choices go on and on.

So as a toast lover I decided to experiment with multiple savory toast combinations and that’s when I came up with this delicious Spicy Chickpea Avocado Toast. The chickpeas on top of the  toast is spicy yet crispy where the avocado spread on the bottom is creamy and buttery. Both flavors balance one another out making the most delicious savory toast.

This recipe is super easy to make. The first thing you want to do preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.  The next step is prepare the chickpeas. I decided to take the quick route and used them from the can. You want to make sure to get all of the chickpea skins off.

How you do that is by laying your chickpeas on a dry paper towel, and with another paper towel on top of the chickpeas use your hand move it back and forth from the top to the bottom. The pressure of your hand and the movement will slowly loosen and remove the chickpeas skins onto the paper towel. I just use my hands to remove the couple chickpeas skins that did not come off.

In a medium bowl I combine the avocado oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, chickpeas, cayenne pepper and mix. Place the seasoned chickpeas on a pan and place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. While the chickpeas are in oven prepare the mashed avocado. Cut your avocados in half and remove the seeds. Scoop out the avocado from its skin and place them in a medium bowl. Using a fork mash the avocado until smooth and creamy. Add the lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

Take the chickpeas out from the oven and place aside. Pop your bread in the toaster and toast. I like my toast extra crispy so I toast my bread 2 times. Add the the mashed avocado to the top of your toast and top with spicy chickpeas and eat immediately!

If you make this recipe I would love if you would snap a photo of your food and share it with me on instagram @itsallgoodvegan.com. I can’t wait to see how you like it!
