Daylight may be (gasp) fading fast, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re ready to huddle up indoors. For a fuss-free dish that can be whipped up before the sun sets, consider stuffed avocados. Just as lovable as their cousin guacamole, these snacks are healthier, heat-free, and ready to eat in 30 minutes.

Stuffed AvocadoIngredients:

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed, drained, and patted dry
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons tandoori masala spice blend
  • 1 tablespoon grape-seed or avocado oil
  • 1 batch tahini sauce
  • 4 ripe avocados, halved, pits removed
  • Lemon juice
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • 6 baby tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ red onion, diced


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium. While it warms up, add chickpeas to a bowl and toss with sea salt and masala spices.
  2. Once skillet is hot, add oil and the above mixture to the pan and sauté, stirring frequently, until slightly crispy and browned, about 8 – 10 minutes.
  3. Once the chickpeas are finished, remove from the stove and set aside to cool. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  4. Prepare the tahini sauce at this time (see instructions in the link above).
  5. To serve, halve avocados and remove pits. You can leave or remove the skin.
  6. Top with a generous squeeze of lemon juice, chickpeas, parsley, tomatoes, onion, and desired sauce.


Dig in immediately – like summer, these bites won’t last long.
