Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad

Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad
Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich I’ve never liked egg salad, potato salad, or macaroni salad. Don’t get me wrong, I love salads, just not the mayonnaise based kind. I can’t stand mayo! Well, I recently created a creamy salad that I love and there is no mayonnaise involved. This Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich gets it’s creaminess from the avocado! My lunch time is usually rushed because Caleb needs mama’s attention, so I love that this healthy salad can be made in minutes. After you get the chickpeas and avocado smashed together, stir in fresh cilantro, green onion, and lime juice. This Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad is also great as a dip for veggies, crackers, and pita chips. If you are looking for a quick and healthy lunch idea, make this Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich.

Beyond Pasta: 10 Delicious Polenta and Risotto Dishes Recipe Roundup We are talking Italian cuisine all week, here at The Kitchn, but we admit that it's been a little pasta-heavy so far. So let's turn our attention to the other two starchy dishes that Italians have perfected, and that we love exceedingly: Polenta and risotto. Polenta, of course, is a simple dish made with fine or coarse cornmeal (you can make it with pretty much any cornmeal in your kitchen) and as such it's the European cousin of grits. It's cooked in boiling water, milk, or stock, and it makes a wonderful base for toppings of spicy greens, pulled meats, or sauces. Risotto is the stirred rice dish that has a reputation for being quite finicky — but honestly, we've never had a truly awful risotto.

Grilled Guacamole Recipe Grilled Guacmole? Ummmm. Heck yes!! I made this recently for Tasty Kitchen and it was gooooood. Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich A guacamole grilled cheese sandwich has been on my to try list for a while now and since I was making the bacon guacamole on the weekend I figured I would just pick up double the ingredients and make both. The basic idea behind this grilled cheese is quite simple and it started out with just adding guacamole to a grilled cheese but with the success of combining salty bacon-y magnificence with cool and creamy guacamole I could not resist adding a few slices of bacon to the sandwich. I also had some leftover corn tortilla chips from dipping on the weekend so I decided to crumble a few of them and add them to the sandwich for texture. Like all grilled cheese sandwiches this one is pretty easy to make though you want to try to remember to pull the guacamole out of the fridge early so that it can come up to room temperature before adding it to the sandwich. Does this grilled cheese sandwich look good? Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich
