Recently, a vegan bakery opened up here in Dallas. Reverie Bakeshop is the name, and if you haven’t checked them out yet, you should. Lots of yummy treats. Anyway, they sell sandwiches as well. One of them is a mashed chickpea and avocado panini. I haven’t tried it yet, but it sounded interesting and I thought I would experiment with my own version. You really can’t go wrong with avocados in my opinion.
This is super easy to make and very versatile too. It would be great spread on my Homemade Wheat Thins, on toast or even inside a lettuce wrap for a grain free option. Since everyone is worried about the mercury levels in tuna, this is a decent alternative.
