Smoked Salmonless Spread

Before I became plant-based, I LOVED smoked salmon spread. Since I am a believer that it's not actually the food itself you love but rather the flavors and textures, I love to recreate the experience I had with animal-based foods with plant-based ingredients. So, here's my version of smoked "salmon" spread...

1 can of cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup unsweetened plain soy yogurt (I used silk) -- do NOT use vanilla!
1 T. ketchup
2 T liquid smoke (yes, TABLESPOONS)
1/4 t. onion powder
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. black pepper
1/8 t. dried dill
1/8 t. sea salt
one 2-inch x 3-inch piece of nori paper

Place all ingredients in blender or food processor EXCEPT the nori paper. Blend on low, scraping down sides often. It will take a while to get the mixture smooth. It should be smooth, thick, and spreadable.
Then, cut nori piece into thin strips with scissors, then again into tiny little squares. Stir by hand into spread mixture. Chill and serve!
