This is a healthy, delicious, organic vegan recipe for a yummy spread for warm crusty bread. I tried to imitate a spread I tasted at a very popular Vegan restaurant in Los Angeles and bring it home to Montreal to serve to my many vegan friends. This is almost exactly the same...even a little better!

A wonderful spread for sandwiches. I did end up switching the 5 spice for curry powder the second time I made it though. Read More

I'm not sure I'd call this delicious. Sauteing the carrots led to a more fibrous consistency than perhaps steaming or boiling them would have. The soy milk maple syrup and 5-spice powder made for an odd sweetness that I found myself eating but not sure how much I was enjoying. Maybe it would be better with curry powder instead of 5-spice.

Delicious! Don't let the kitchen sink approach scare you off this is a great recipe. I follow it exactly and even those who seemed unsure given the ingredients loved it once they tried it. I like to serve it in a bread bowl Read More
