ingredients

canned chickpeas
spinach
avocado
minced garlic
tahini dressing (recipe below)

spices
cumin
chipotle
cayenne
salt
pepper

instructions

add chickpeas to a pan on stovetop over medium heat (would be wonderful roasted in the oven as well)
add spices and a bit of oil (i used olive oil)
stir to mix
let it sit for a few minutes
stir some more
remove from heat
while the chickpeas cool, sprinkle some spinach on your pita
add chickpeas to the pita
top with sliced avocado
drizzle tahini dressing
enjoy!

tip
i did not use much oil and i removed my chickpeas from the heat when they started to stick to the pan. since they were canned, i really just wanted to warm them up and dry them out a little.

tahini dressing

mix ingredients below in a small bowl, adjust spices to taste
tahini
splash of lemon juice
garlic
onion powder
splash of water (use more or less depending on desired consistency)

final thoughts
i loooved this. it was almost too easy and it was super filling. as with any recipe, anything i used can be subbed/added (i used only what i had on hand!). next time i will add red onion as i felt it was missing some crunch.
