While this recipe calls for two slices of whole-wheat sourdough bread, you can use any toast of choice. Begin by mashing one avocado and then spreading it on both slices of bread.

Then, you’ll toss roasted chickpeas in a mixture of salt, cayenne, ginger and cinnamon. Chickpeas provide an excellent source of plant-based protein and fiber, which has a filling effect and improves digestion.

Finally, you’ll garnish with feta cheese, chopped mint leaves and lemon zest. And voila! You’ll be able to enjoy this dressed-up version of avocado toast in just 10 minutes.
