Yummy Chickpea Avocado Dip — Store bought dips can be tasty but they have a tendency to be high in calories and unhealthy fats. This dip is exceptionally fresh and tasty and loaded with nutritional value – vitamin C, A, plant protein, iron, fibre and healthy fats. It can be whipped up in less than 10 minutes!

 1 cup frozen green chickpeas or edamame
 ½ medium avocado
 1 tbsp tahini
 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
 juice of 1/2 lemon
 1 clove minced garlic
 salt and pepper to taste
 pinch of cayenne or smoked paprika (optional)

1

Cook the chickpeas or edamame according to package instructions. (I cooked the green chickpeas for just 1.5 minutes in the microwave)

2

Put all ingredients into your mixer and process until smooth.

3

Serve with raw vegetables, sweet potato or potato fries, veggie chips, nachos, crostini or crackers.
