Serves 4

Avocado boats

 1 Tetra Cart Colavita Chickpeas, rinsed and drained
 4 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
 ½ tsp smoked paprika
 2 large avocados
 ½ cup cucumber, diced (about half a large cucumber)
 ½ cup cherry tomatoes, diced
 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
 Colavita Balsamic Glaze
 ¼ cup chopped parsley
 Salt and pepper

Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium/high heat.


Rinse and dry 1 package of Colavita chickpeas. Transfer them to a baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tbsp Colavita olive oil and then toss with smoked paprika and a few generous twists of salt and pepper.


Bake at 425°F for about 20-30 minutes until lightly charred and crispy. Remove from heat and let cool.


Cut the avocados in half, removing the pit. Drizzle with 1 or 2 tbsp Colavita Olive Oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place, flesh-side down, onto the grill and cook until grill-marks form, about 5 minutes.


While the avocados cook, mix the cucumber, tomatoes, parsley, lemon juice and 1 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.


Divide the cucumber mixture between each avocado half. Top each half with a scoop of roasted chickpeas and drizzle with Colavita balsamic glaze.


Serve with lemon wedges.
