Chickpeas and kale are a tasty team, and this combination makes a great spread for bread, a filling for pita bread or a wrap, or layered scoop of it on a sturdy flatbread and served open-faced.
Ingredients
  • 2 medium kale leaves (any variety), rinsed well
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 cups cooked or one 15- to 16-ounce can (drained and rinsed) chickpeas
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional, but highly recommended)
  • ⅓ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley leaves or 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh dill leaves
  • 1 to 2 scallions, green parts only, cut into large pieces, optional
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed or bottled lemon juice, to taste
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder, or more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin, or more to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Fresh green sprouts, optional
Instructions
  1. Combine the kale and carrot in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until the chickpeas are evenly chopped and everything is nicely blended—don’t over-process; leave the mixture a bit chunky.
  3. Transfer to a serving container and serve at once, or cover and refrigerate until needed.
