  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and mashed
  • 1 cup/150 grams cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Juice of 1 medium lemon juice
  • Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Optional: 5 oz/150 grams of canned tuna in water, drained
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed avocado with the lemon juice. Stir in the chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, and tuna if using. Toss in the cilantro. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and black pepper. Eat and enjoy!
