Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich

I tried this recipe, and it was tasty and easy!

Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich
by TWO PEAS on MARCH 16, 2012

Yield: Salad for 3-4 sandwichesPrep Time: 10 minutesTotal Time: 10 minutes
This Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich is a great quick and easy lunch option that is good for you too! The salad also makes a great dip!

1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas or garbanzo beans (I use Bush’s Garbanzo Beans)
1 large ripe avocado
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
Juice from 1 lime
Salt and pepper, to taste
Bread of your choice (I use whole wheat bread)
Fresh spinach leaves or other sandwich toppings: lettuce, tomato slices, sprouts, etc.

1. Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Place on a paper towel and remove the outer skins. You can leave them on, but I like to remove them.

2. In a medium bowl, using a fork or potato masher smash the chickpeas and avocado together. Add in cilantro, green onion, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

3. Spread salad on bread and top with your favorite sandwich toppings. I like to add fresh spinach leaves.

Note: This salad also makes a great dip. Serve with cut up veggies, crackers, or pita chips. Also, this salad is best eaten the day it is made because it will turn brown due to the avocado.

A Prayer for Good Friday

From Hub Pages
A Prayer for Unity

Father in heaven,

you are the Father of all men.

We ask you to send your Holy Spirit,

the Spirit who unites people,

so that all men

will forget past troubles,

put aside unfair opinions,

and work together for the good of all,

no matter what their religion,

no matter what their races,

so that at the end,

this world,

made good by men working together,

in the spirit of Jesus and working with YOU,

may be handed over to YOU by your Son,

Unite especially all christians

so that soon they may be together again,

as one flock around the table of the Lord’s supper.

We ask you to unite more closely those of our Church,

so that led by the Spirit towards your kingdom,

we may work, pray and live happily together

in love and peace. (Amen ).
