There are a lot of vegan spreads to buy nowadays. So much that it is sometimes hard to decide which one to choose. Despite the spreads made from veggies, many of those spreads have a lot of fat. And often this fat is cheap sunflower oil, which isn’t the best choice for your health, because of its fatty acids composition.
Not only to safe this fat, but also to safe some money (spreads in the supermarket can be expensive), make your own spread! However you’ll need a little fat to round off the flavor, but just use rapeseed oil for that, which has a better composition of fatty acids.
Dried tomatoes and oregano add Mediterranean flair and spice.
