Avocado Garbanzo Tomato Open Face Sandwich

I had quite a few avocados that I purchased on sale so I thought I better try and use some of them up. I was not in the mood for a super fancy breakfast/lunch kind of meal so I made this simple dish that did not take up a lot of my time as I had a lot of appointments. I like Garbanzo beans but I did not want to make a smooth hummus so I mashed the garbanzo beans really chunky, same as the avocados. I was impressed with the simplicity of my meal it came out really good. Filled me up, hit the spot and I was on the go so it was perfect! Enjoy!

1 can of organic garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained (you will use about ½ cup of the whole mixture)
¼ cup of Tahini sauce
1 Roma tomato cut into cubes
1 avocado, remove seed
1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
1 whole grain English muffin toasted
Salt and Pepper

Mash the garbanzo beans in a bowl until you get a chunky texture. Add the tahini sauce and mix well. Season the garbanzo mixture with salt and pepper. Set aside. Cut up the tomato into chunk bite size pieces. Half the avocado and remove the seed. Scoop out the fleshy part of the avocado and put in a bowl. Add the Roma tomato, lime juice and cilantro in the avocado and mix well. You want a chunky smooth kind of appearance. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. On the toasted English muffin, smear about ¼ cup of the garbanzo mixture on both sides of the English muffin and spread on top with the Avocado/Tomato mixture.
