avocado chickpea sandwich spread

I have a pretty huge test tomorrow so naturally I’m making dinner, blogging, and watching Parenthood.

It’s the exam that I need to pass to eventually have a license to be an audiologist, which is pretty crucial given the 8 years of school I will have put into it.

My understanding is that it’s 120 multiple choice questions that represent a mix between extremely easy Audiology 101 type questions, questions about things that are so outdated they aren’t even taught in Au.D. programs anymore or obscure laws/formulas/rules, and questions that don’t actually have one correct answer but rather you have to pick “the best” of the bad choices.

I’ve been trying to study a little bit each day at work. Of course my co-workers have all taken and passed it so they seem unfazed. “Oh, no one fails the Praxis. I mean, people fail it I guess. But no one I know.”

I think that was supposed to make me feel better.

Luckily it’s a computer-based test so I’ll know immediately whether I passed and can start day drinking, or whether I failed and will need to spend $115 to take it again and can start day drinking.

Until I’m a real audiologist I will continue to post recipes that cost about $6 total.


Avocado Chickpea Sandwich Spread

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

2 ripe avocados

2 tbs red onion, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

8-10 basil leaves, chopped

juice of one lime

salt and pepper, to taste

I decided to make this a chunky spread, but feel free to toss it all in your food processor to make some kind of delicious hummus/guacamole hybrid. I just really hate to clean my food processor.


This would also be great as a vegetarian sandwich/wrap, but I added some turkey and cucumber slices to mine just to make it extravagant on this wild Friday night I’m having.


Wish me luck! Fitting this fat sandwich in my mouth, and passing the test.
