What makes a vegan spread?
When we think of vegan friendly spreads, the first thing that usually comes to mind is hummus or guacamole. Hummus is Middle Eastern dip consisting of chickpeas, tahini, spices and olive oil, while guacamole is made from avocados. However, these days there are far more spreads for vegans to choose from, which include;
- Nut Butters - made from Peanuts, Hazelnuts, Cashew Nuts, Macadamia Nuts, Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, or Sesame Seeds. Nut butters provide a valuable source of plant-based fats and Vitamin E.
- Pesto - makes for a healthy alternative to butter and other spreads. Pesto is made from Pine Nuts or cashews, virgin Olive oil, and a selection of Herbs & Spices.
- Legume-based spreads - such as the aformentioned hummus, are made from ingredients such as chickpeas, lentils, beans and vegetables. Legume-based spreads provide a rich source of protein, fibre, Iron, and B vitamins.
- Jams - not all jams are made for with gelatine or other animal-based ingredients. If you look hard enough, you will find that some fruit preserves are made with pectin, a plant-based thickening agent.
