Turmeric Chickpea Avocado Boats are a delicious, easy and healthy lunch that’s perfect for the new year!
Easily enjoyed on-the-go, fresh avocados are stuffed with a creamy, turmeric-spiced chickpea salad, which creates a meal that’s loaded with protein, fiber, healthy fat and, most importantly, big flavor.
Add a scoop to half of an avocado and you’ll find yourself full for hours! If you have leftover chickpea salad, it’s delicious on toast or in salads.
