Chickpea "Tuna" Salad in Avocados
"Chickpea 'Tuna' Salad in Avocados" (page 82) is another wonderful meal for a hot summer day. No ovens, stoves, microwaves, crock pots, grills, or toaster ovens required. The 'tuna' part of this dish consists of a mixture of chopped garbanzo beans combined with minced fresh veggies and a sprinkle of spices, and moistened with vegan mayo (choose an oil free variety to keep this McDougall friendly). Mound this into a fresh avocado half, lay it atop a bed of fresh chopped lettuce, and you've got yourself light summer fare. Watermelon makes a nice thirst quenching dessert!
