Upgraded Avocado Toast: grilled zucchini & spicy crispy chickpeas

Our perception of what a balanced and conscious diet turns out to be quite extreme or restrictive, being influenced by the ‘new diets’ guidelines, the urgency to reduce our animal protein consumption or by the democratisation of organic products.
