Vita Mix Chia Cheese Pimiento Spread

The chia seeds do make wonders in making this spread attain a creamy texture despite the absence of cream, butter or real cheese. I have eaten this over toast and as my filling for a sandwich.  (Have lettuce as a barrier between bread and this concoction or spread a bit of Earth Balance on the bread when using for a sandwich).

I have developed a craving for this spread both for its taste and texture.  It is also motivating that it has the superfood chia seeds performing a great role in making the texture appealing aside from increasing its nutritional value. .

I did use my Vita Mix Blender for this spread.  I placed the vegetable ingredients one at a time and in the sequence given and it worked.

I had this for my lunch as a sandwich and as my breakfast over bread that I toasted together with some spinach on top in my toaster oven.  Very satisfying.
