Wedding shower tea party: avocado chickpea sandwiches

The sandwiches are in the foreground

For tea sandwiches, we made the traditional cucumber, with cream cheese and dill, but I also wanted to try this Smashed chickpea and avocado salad sandwich (that I also found on Pinterest).

I doubled the recipe, which resulted in way too much filling, so here's the original-sized version:

Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich

1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas or 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 (we used some gluten-free and some sourdough oatmeal)
Rinse and drain the chickpeas.

In a food processor, blend the chickpeas and avocado. Add in cilantro, green onion, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

The filling

Spread salad on bread. Cut off crusts and cut into triangles, squares or rectangles.
