Red Pepper Tofu and Chickpea Spread Recipe

0

Red pepper spreads are usually chock full of cream and cheese – making them a delight for the palette but a terror to the waistline. They are also eradicated from the vegan diet due to their animal-based ingredients. This version is incredibly healthy and also protein-filled. Not only is it a delicious dip, but also is perfect for spreading on a Mediterranean Panini or as a topping for burgers.
