Chickpea and Kale Sandwich Spread/Salad

One of my holiday discoveries and a new favorite! This tasty sandwich or cracker spread can also be served as a salad on lettuce leaves or sprouts, with tomatoes for added color and nutrition. -LuAnn

Serves 4 to 6 (Makes 2 to 2 1/2 cups)


2 medium kale leaves, well rinsed, lower portion of the thick stems removed
1 medium carrot, peeled, then cut into chunks
1/8 sweet onion, cut in pieces
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas/garbanzos, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
1/3 cup vegan mayonnaise (Vegenaise or Just Mayo)
3 Tablespoons Eden Garlic Gomasio* (LuAnn's addition)
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1-2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cumin (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
Dash black pepper


Combine the kale, carrot and onion in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped.
Add the drained chickpeas/garbanzos and parley leaves; pulse until the chickpeas and parsley are coarsely chopped.
Add the remaining ingredients; pulse until everything is well mixed. (Pulse more or less to obtain preferred texture).
Adjust seasonings to taste.
Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate.

*I purchase Garlic Gomasio at Whole Foods; it is a delicious savory seasoning made from toasted sesame seeds, celtic sea salt and garlic. If you don't have it, you can substitute toasted sesame seeds + garlic salt to taste.
