This spread is not a mock tuna, mock egg or mock chicken salad... its just a spicy chickpea spread worthy of your next lunch. It tastes somewhat like tofu scramble and could be used as a "scramble" if you're looking to cut out soy. The best part? This recipe comes together in less than 5 minutes, requires no heating/cooking *and* the ways to use this spread are limited only by your imagination. I slabbed the spread on sprouted grain bread with freshly sliced tomatoes, but it would be great in a lettuce wrap, on top of a salad, spread on crackers, eaten with raw veggies, mixed with bell peppers and corn for a fuller meal...
