  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 avocado
  • Paprika for sprinkling (sweet paprika)

Avocado provides a considerable amount of fat, the remarkable thing is that these fats are healthy fats and a good source of energy.

Place in the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes.

There are two ways you can do it. You can cut the avocado, remove the seed, and fill with a tablespoon of the chickpea mixture directly into the avocado halves.

Alternatively, you can cut the avocado in half, scoop out the pit, and then cut into cubes. Place the avocado pieces on a plate and place the chickpea mixture on top of each one.

Whichever way you do it, be sure to sprinkle on paprika / paprika before serving.
