I’m back from a little blogging hiatus. And I’m easing into things with this simple and quick Avocado Toast with Spicy Marinated Chickpeas and Zucchini.
Baby steps, right?
Also, I just want to say up-front that I know this recipe seems rather unassuming. But it’s not. It completely exceeded all of my expectations. I almost dropped to my knees after I took the first bite. It’s that good. So seriously. You HAVE to make this one. Trust your old pal Liz.
You all know by now that I’m obsessed with avocado toast. And that I’m also on a personal mission to grill ALL THE THINGS. So it was only a matter of time before I combined those two elements together.
For this recipe, I grilled both the avocados and the bread. And oh my gosh, it makes everything taste AH-MAZING! The avocados get so incredibly creamy after just a couple of minutes on the grill. And the light char on the olive oil-brushed bread is absolute perfection.
The marinated chickpea and raw zucchini ribbon topping is very easy to toss together. And it’s equally good eaten straight up as it is piled high on top of the warm avocado toast. The juices drip down and soak into the bread slightly (you might want to tackle this avocado toast with a knife and fork), making every single bite super flavorful.
This Avocado Toast with Spicy Marinated Chickpeas and Zucchini is exactly how I like to eat all Summer long. I don’t need any complicated, time consuming dinners. Light, fresh and fast is where it’s at! Which makes this recipe perfect to share as part of our monthly 30 Minute Thursday series.
