Lentil Curry Spread (Vegan)

Sunflower Seed Tomato Spread

Sunflower Seed Tomato Spread (Vegan, Gluten-free)

When it comes to vegan bread spreads you won’t find much on offer in New Zealand. I’ve been spoiled for choice when living in Germany. You can buy so many different vegan options. Tofu with all sorts of flavouring and spices. Heaps of different luncheons, savory, as well as sweet spreads etc…

The good thing about this situation: it motivates me to make my own. It not only tastes better but you also know what it is actually made of. Continue reading
