Turn a storecupboard staple into a twist on this popular brunch dish, livened up with sesame seeds and spring onions


Liven up a storecupboard staple with this super-simple dish. Chickpeas are high in fibre, especially a soluble fibre called raffinose, which is broken down by beneficial gut bacteria to support regular bowel movements. Avocado offers a bunch of healthy nutrients such as magnesium, zinc and potassium to support digestion. Try more breakfasts for a healthy gut.

  • sesame seeds a sprinkle
  • spring onion 1, finely sliced on the diagonal


  • Step 1

    Put the chickpeas, miso, sesame oil, lemon juice and some seasoning in a bowl. Use a potato masher to crush everything together until you have a rough paste.
