Easy and refreshing spicy chickpea avocado cucumber bites. Garnish with fresh herbs and chipotle crema.
Stir the lemon or lime juice into the avocado, and season the avocado mash to taste with salt and pepper.
Onto each cucumber slice, spread a small amount of avocado mash, and press a small handful of spicy chickpeas into the avocado. If using, drizzle lightly with chipotle crema or vegan chipotle mayo. Garnish with fresh parsley.
This recipe is best served with the cucumber and avocado cold. You can prep the cucumber slices, chopped herbs, and crema in advance. Keep the avocado in the refrigerator until time to prepare the mash. Top with freshly-cooked, or room temperature, spicy chickpeas.
