Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: Grilled Avocado Halves with Crispy Chickpea Filling (6 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: Barbecue or stovetop grilling pan, mixing bowl, barbecue heavy frying pan
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp coriander, ground
  • 2 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 400 g can chickpeas, drained rinsed and patted dry
  • 3 ripe avocados, halved
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened plain plant-based yogurt
  • ½ lemon, zested and juiced
  • ½ lemon cut into wedges
  • Handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped
Recipe Directions


  • Preheat your grill to anywhere between 400°-500°F or 200°-260°C.
  • Mix together 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, 1 ½ teaspoon of the smoked paprika, the cumin seeds, 1 teaspoon of the ground coriander, 1 of the garlic cloves, the red onion, and the chick peas.
  • Place a heavy frying pan on the barbecue. Add the chickpea mixture and fry for 8-10 mins, tossing occasionally, until crisp and fragrant. Remove from the heat and then lightly crush with the back of a fork.
  • Brush the cut side of the avocado halves with the remaining 1 tbsp oil and place, flat side down, onto the barbecue for 3-5 mins, until charred.
  • Meanwhile, make the dressing by mixing together the plant-based yogurt, lemon juice, remaining garlic clove, remaining ground coriander, and remaining smoked paprika, until evenly combined.
  • Put the charred avocados on a serving platter and fill the avocado seed holes with the chick pea mix, scattering any extra over the top.
  • Drizzle with the dressing and serve garnished with the parsley, lemon zest, and lemon wedges.
