1 (15- to 16-ounce can) chickpeas
1/3 cup vegan mayonnaise substitute
2 TBS nutritional yeast
1 TBS lemon juice
2 tsp. or more yellow mustard
1 tsp. or more curry powder
Pinch or more of ground cumin
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
2 TBS finely chopped chives or scallions
8 to 10 ripe plum (Roma) tomatoes
Paprika for topping
Drain and rinse chickpeas. Combine all ingredients except chives or scallions, tomatoes and paprika in a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Pulse on and off until the mixture is nicely melded but don’t puree — leave a little texture. (If you don’t have a food processor, mash it all together with a fork or potato masher.) Add the chives or scallions through the feed tube last and just combine.
Slice each tomato in half. Spoon out and discard the seedy interior. Fill each half with a heaping mound of the chick pea mixture. Sprinkle paprika on top of each.
