Turmeric Chickpea Avocado Boats are a delicious, easy and healthy lunch that’s perfect for the new year!

Easily enjoyed on-the-go, fresh avocados are stuffed with a creamy, turmeric-spiced chickpea salad, which creates a meal that’s loaded with protein, fiber, healthy fat and, most importantly, big flavor.
