Mock Tuna Salad

This is a very delectable sandwich spread. You can spread it on toast or use it as a dip. It is rich in healthy fats and high in protein.

1 (28 oz) can organic garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 avocado, mashed (I used the whole avocado and would highly recommend you doing the same :))
1/2 cup onion, finely diced
4 celery stalks, finely diced
1/2 cup diced dill pickles
garlic powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste

Process the beans in a chopper until they look like, well, tuna. You don't want to over process, you still want to have some texture from the beans. I used a potato masher and it worked great. Combine the beans with the mashed avocado, onions, celery and diced dill pickles. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well. Enjoy!
