Stuffed Avocados

As we say goodbye to Kelowna and prepare for new adventures in the Vancouver area, our nights have been filled with catching up with friends over dinner and night boat rides. With so many evenings of entertaining over the last month, meal planning and fitness goals could have quite easily got off track. So as we headed into these last crazy busy weeks, I made it a priority to plan out our meals. I recently gave up all animal products so I have been getting adventurous in the kitchen and trying new dishes out on my daring and loving guests. These delicious stuffed avocados are one of my new favourites. On this particular night I served them in the avocado skin with a garlic/balsamic dressing drizzled over them.  The following evening, we made a huge salad with them paired with  a ranch dressing to offset the smokey taste of the paprika chic peas.

Enjoy~~*

Stuffed Avocados:

  • 1 can BPA free chickpeas drained and rinsed (I used a large can so I had left overs)
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • salt & pepper
  • 4 large avocados with
  • 1 cucumber
  • cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lemon

Directions:

Once your chickpeas are rinsed and drained, place them in a medium size bowl with paprika, coconut oil, salt and pepper. Mix until chickpeas are covered in mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until slightly browned. Scoop out the inside of your avocados, chop remaining ingredients and mix all together to fill your avocado skins. Top with a dressing of your choice.
