Ingredients

TOAST:

  • 2 slices rustic bread, toasted (I like to use sourdough bread)
  • 2 organic Hass avocados, pitted + mashed
  • 1 teaspoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • Pinch of sea salt + black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

ROASTED CHICKPEAS + TOMATOES:

  • 2 Tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, drained + rinsed
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved or whole
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt + black pepper, each
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

SPICY MAPLE SYRUP:

  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Pinch of sea salt + black pepper

Instructions

TO ROAST CHICKPEAS + TOMATOES:

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare TWO baking sheets by lining it with parchment paper.
  • In separate bowls, add the tomatoes and chickpeas followed by an equal amount of each seasoning: salt, black pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika, oregano, basil, and parsley. Drizzle both tomatoes and chickpeas with 1 tablespoon of olive oil (each).
  • Add the tomatoes and chickpeas unto their own baking sheets (in a single layer) and bake for 15-20 minutes or until tomatoes are charred, wilted, and tender and the chickpeas are crispy. Remove and let cool slightly.

MASH THE AVOCADOS:

  • In a bowl, add the flesh of each avocado (by removing the flesh from their pits and skin) along with lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper, mashing everything together using a fork until combined and smooth. NOTE: chunks are OK to have if desired.

MAKE THE SPICY MAPLE SYRUP:

  • In a bowl, mix together the maple syrup, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper until combined.

ASSEMBLY:

  • On a plate, add your toasted bread followed by spoonfuls of mashed avocado atop, spreading it evenly. Top with 1-2 Tbsps of roasted chickpeas and tomatoes. Drizzle with spicy maple syrup. Repeat until all servings are made.
  • Bon Appetit!
