This savory vegan waffle topping recipe is inspired by a Middle Eastern chickpea dish. It has a rich, somewhat tangy, intense flavor. You can spread it on waffles, or dip them into it like you would dip chips in hummus. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
If you'd like the flavor to be a bit more intense, add 1 to 2 more tablespoons of pickled mango.
If, on the other hand, it's a bit too tart for you, add 1 to 2 more tablespoons of agave nectar, maple syrup, or other preferred sweetener.
If you can't find sumac spice, you can use a bit of paprika for a similar aesthetic effect, even though it doesn't have the tartness of sumac.
