Chickpeas are small enough to fit inside avocados, and, because they’re great vehicles for dressings and seasoning mixtures, they can bring new flavors to the fruit. Cook chickpeas, toss them with your favorite ingredients (garlic, olive oil, and onion are safe bets), and add a dollop of the mixture to the avocado. Alternatively, you can scoop out the avocado meat beforehand, add it to the chickpeas, and place the mixture in the avocado shell, which makes for a larger vessel.
