Who doesn't love a quick and easy vegan spread which is ready in less than 10 minutes? We put together a delicious vegan spread which can be used as a starter for your dinner party or even as a dip alongside some hummus, puff pastry appetizers or vegan breadsticks.
What's so special about this vegan spread? It tastes cheesy and it has a lovely Mediterranean flavour. It's also creamy and buttery thanks to the giant white beans we used for the recipe. We also added sundried tomatoes, a personal favourite because of their slightly sweet and tangy taste.
How to make the perfect vegan spread?
A few things to note about this recipe. We cook our own beans in a pressure cooker but you can also purchase them ready-made in a can. If you don't find giant white beans you can use normal white beans but remember the result of the vegan spread might not be as creamy and buttery.
For the sundried tomatoes, we always buy them in a jar, in olive oil. Instead of using olive oil for our recipe, we use the oil mixture from the tomatoes jar. We find that it adds more flavour to the vegan spread. But don't worry, it will taste just as great with plain olive oil if that's what you prefer.
For decoration, we use pine nuts and parsley but you can, of course, get creative here. You can add freshly cooked white beans to the top of the vegan spread, or just some parsley if you prefer. It's entirely up to you.
How we eat this vegan spread?
This vegan spread is exceptional for morning toast and sandwiches. We sometimes add just half an avocado on top, sprinkle some extra salt and we have a quick and easy breakfast ready.
We use this vegan spread as a dip for pretty much all dinner parties we throw. We love it with Italian grissini or with a nicely cut vegan wrap on the side.
You will love this vegan spread because it's creamy, easy to make, cheesy and slightly sweet.
