Chickpea Avocado (Mock Tuna) Salad Sandwich (GF)

Man is this recipe good. Tuna sandwiches were one of my favorite things to eat and I found myself missing them yesterday. I looked for a recipe for mock tuna salad sandwiches and found many using chickpeas as a replacement. Great! But, they also called for mayo. We have been trying to avoid using this processed food and I came across a comment on one of the recipes that said they subbed avocado for the mayo. Awesome! So I put two and two together and this is what came out.

1 can (15oz) chickpeas (or about 1 1/2 cups cooked, if using dry)
3 small avocados
1/4 c or more minced kimchi
1/8 tsp salt
scant 1/4 c lime juice

The kimchi really gave it a lovely spicy and tangy flavor and the texture was very reminiscent of tuna salad. I was very pleased and it was really easy to make. Serve on bread (we use Silver Hills GF bread)with lettuce, tomato, or any of your favorite sandwich toppings.
