Vegan Spreads for your daily snacks
I just realized how important my snack time was after going vegetarian. Meat products take a long time to digest, making us feel fuller for hours. When you start eating plant-based products, your body can digest the food faster, meaning that you may be hungry again a few hours after your main meals.
Snack time has become another important meal at home. Our son Luca brings his packed lunch to school so we had to start thinking of a wider variety of vegan dips and spreads for his sandwiches and toasts that are nutritious and delicious.
All these vegan spreads are protein-packed containing plant-based protein-high whole foods such as pulses, tahini, tofu, nuts, seeds, etc.
To have a complete snack you want to make sure you are making a protein-high spread that is at the same time nutritious and delicious.
You can find different types of plant-based proteins that are great options to make your spreads.
Pulses. Chickpeas and beans are widely used to make spreads and dips such as hummus and bean dips.
Soy Products. Such as tofu, edamame or tempeh. You will find in our list some recipes that use tofu to make vegan cheese spreads. As well, you can make hummus using edamame, did you know that?
Nuts and seeds. Some vegan spreads are made using just one ingredient such as cashews, peanuts, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, or sesame seeds. As well, you can use ingredients such as chia seeds to make lovely jams.
If you don't have that much time to get cooking and want to start including vegan spreads in your diet you can buy vegan products in your regular grocery stores such as vegan butter, plant-based margarine, already-made nut butter, store-bought vegan pesto, mushroom paté, olive tapenade, hummus, and other spreads that are 100% plant-based.
