These Stuffed Avocados with Creamy Chickpea Salad are packed with flavors, made with heart-healthy ingredients and come together within minutes. Serve them as a starter or even as a main course, either way, they promise to fill your body with so much goodness.

Stuffed Avocados with Creamy Chickpea Salad
For the chickpea salad I used canned chickpeas. Just to make things easier & quicker. Of course, you can also use dried chickpeas if you like. Just soak them overnight in plenty of water and then simmer the following day for 1 to 2 hours or until tender.

Stuffed Avocados with Creamy Chickpea Salad
For the creaminess I used low fat Greek yogurt. You can also use full fat, non fat or even a plant based yogurt to veganize this recipe. These stuffed avocados will hold for up to 5 days in the fridge in an air-tight container.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: When picking avocados at the store, gently squeeze them and feel for just a bit of softness. If they´re too soft they are over-ripe, If they´re hard they are not ready. If you can only find hard avocados, just place them in a paper bag with a piece of fruit. In 24 hours you will have perfectly ripe avocados.
