To prepare whole wheat spaghetti with avocado cream and crispy chickpeas, start by drying the chickpeas with kitchen paper. Put them in a bowl and add the flour. Mix well to flour the chickpeas uniformly, then put them in a baking tray lined with parchment paper and cook at 170 degrees for 20 minutes, until golden and crisp.
Then put them in a fine knit strainer and shake so as to cause the chickpea to lose excess flour. Transfer them to a small bowl and season them with the oil, salt, ground pink pepper and lime peel. Mix and keep warm.
Meanwhile, boil the pasta in a pot with plenty of salted water that will have brought to a boil.
While the pasta is cooking take care of the avocado cream: cut the fruit in half lengthwise and remove the core. With a spoon, collect the avocado pulp and put it in a bowl. Season with oil and salt. Cut the lime in half and squeeze it to make the juice. Pour the juice into the bowl together with the avocado and finally blend in a fine cream with an immersion blender. Lastly add the chives to the cream, cut into slices with a pair of kitchen scissors.
