You definitely want to try this avocado chickpea perfect relish with your grilled fish dishes. I served it here with orange grilled shrimp.  The avocado chickpea relish pairs perfectly with the other flavors;  it’s satisfying, nutritious and delicious.   The dish provides the perfect balance of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats.  Protein and fat provide satiety, as well as slow down the absorption of carbohydrates, keeping our blood sugar steady.  However, avocado is the star here, which is the only one pitted fruit that has a substantial amount of monounsaturated fat, and can lower cholesterol.  Avocado is also loaded with B6, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, and fiber.  Chickpeas are loaded with fiber and minerals as well. All in all, this avocado chickpea relish is a nutritional powerhouse!

 So, do you have ten minutes? That’s about all it takes to put this avocado relish together!!
