Vegan and gluten-free, this takes very little prep, just a few minutes to cook the spice mix and then as much time as it needs in the blender to get to your desired level of crunchiness or creaminess!

Delicious on toast, a bagel, by the spoonful!

Or get faux fancy and make a side of toast points!
