  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


  • 1 15 ounce can of chickpeas
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil, divided
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
  • 1 large or 2 small zucchinis
  • 1/2 cup of corn (cooked or raw)
  • basil (I used purple basil)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup of chopped tomato

For the avocado sauce:

  • 1 avocado, skin and pit removed
  • 1/2 cup of mayo (vegan mayo if vegan)
  • handful of fresh basil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lime juice
  • water to thin (I ended up using about 1/4 cup but add it in gradually)


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare the chickpeas by rinsing them and then drying them off with a paper towel. I don’t bother removing the skins but you can if you want.
  2. Place the chickpeas on a greased or lined baking sheet and toss them with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, S&P, and the garlic and basil.
  3. Bake the chickpeas for 25 minutes, stirring halfway. Once done, let cool slightly.
  4. While the chickpeas roast, prepare the avocado sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blending until creamy and full combined.
  5. Prepare the zucchini by spiralizing it and then cutting the strands into manageable pieces.
  6. In a large skillet, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the zucchini noodles. Over medium heat, toss the noodles so that they are evenly coated in the olive oil. Cook for 2-8 minutes depending on how done you want the noodles. I cook mine for about 4 minutes so that they’re heated all the way through but still have some good crunch to them.
  7. Once done, take the noodles off of the heat and divide them between 2 plates. Top the noodles with the avocado sauce and toss until the sauce is evenly distributed on the noodles.
  8. Top the noodles with the tomato, onion, basil, chickpeas, and corn (plus any other veggies you have).
  9. ENJOY!!
