Servings 6


  • 3 1/2 cup chickpeas
  • 1 large celery stalk
  • 1 roasted bell pepper
  • 1/2 bunch spring onions
  • 1/2 large carrot
  • 1/4 cup plain unsweetened oat yogurt
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • A few dashes of hot sauce


  • Chop the red pepper, celery, carrot, and spring onions into 2" pieces. Add them to a food processor, and pulse until roughly twice the size of a pea.
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients, and pulse until all of the ingredients are combined and hold together, but there is still some texture.
  • Use immediately, or transfer to a glass bowl with a lid and store in the fridge for 3-5 days.


  • If you don't want to use oat yogurt, use your preferred unsweetened plain plant-based yogurt instead.
  • This sandwich spread can be used in 6-8 sandwiches depending on how much you use.
  • Serve on a sandwich or in a wrap, and add greens, sliced tomato, or any other vegetables you like.
