Creamy Chickpea Spread with Fresh Bell Pepper, Romaine & Avocado

Warm weather just calls for meals like this! Very quick to put together and so fresh and crunchy. I feel like this will become a stable recipe for the spring/summer!…I actually wish I had some right now. :[ These would probably be good baked in the oven too! Must try that sometime…with vegan cheese on top. Oh my. Ok, I think I’ve had a bit too much caffeine so I’ll end this here. 😉
