Vegan Avocado & Chickpea Salad

Servings: 2

Every week my family participates in meat-free Mondays. I truly believe reducing our consumption of animal products helps the environment. And at the same time, it gets my creative juices flowing! This recipe, which I created for one such meatless Monday, is packed with vitamins and essential nutrients, and one serving surpasses your daily-recommended intake of fiber!

 

INGREDIENTS

2 cups cooked chickpeas, peeled
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 avocado, cubed
1 carrot, peeled and julienned
6 basil leaves
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Combine the chickpeas, tomatoes, avocado, carrot, basil, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl, tossing to combine.
2. Divide between two serving bowls and garnish with the toasted sesame seeds. Serve and enjoy!
