Is Chickpea Guacamole Vegetarian or Vegan?
This chickpeas and avocados recipe is both vegetarian and vegan, so is a great choice for those of us with dietary restrictions.
Just make sure you choose garnishes that work for you, too.
There are some excellent plant-based yogurt and sour cream brands available, so you can definitely use those instead of the standard ones that contain dairy.
Is This a Gluten Free Recipe?
Chickpea Guacamole is naturally gluten-free, so is a good choice for people with celiac disease and others who avoid gluten.
Be sure to check package labeling for the ingredients, if you need to be careful about cross contamination.
Gluten-free folks will want to use gluten-free bread for the toast or gluten-free chips or crackers, if serving this as a traditional guacamole dip.

Are Chickpeas and Garbanzo Beans The Same Thing?
Chickpeas and garbanzo beans are the same, so you can use ones with either name in this recipe.
You can either use chickpeas that have already been cooked in a can or you can purchase dried chickpeas and cook them yourself.
I prefer cooking them myself, since it is easier on the budget and homecooked chickpeas taste fantastic.
However, I also keep canned chickpeas in my pantry to have them available for quicker food prep.
Chickpeas and garbanzo beans are indeed the same exact thing.
How To Serve Chickpea Guacamole
As you can see from my photos, the guacamole is perfect to use as a topping for healthy chickpea avocado toast.
However, it doesn’t need to be served on toast.
You can simply serve it in a bowl with chips, crackers or veggies instead of your usual guacamole recipe.
Whether you enjoy it as chickpea avocado toast or as chickpea guacamole, this recipe is delicious and contains feel-good nutrition.
