Deliciously Organic Carrot Spread

Rated as 3.8 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

  1. Heat canola oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Cook carrots and onion, stirring occasionally, until carrots are tender and onions are translucent. Do not allow the onions to brown. Add water, and bring to a boil. Cover, and simmer for 15 minutes; set aside to cool.
  2. When mixture is cool enough to process safely, transfer to a blender or food processor. Add soy milk, miso paste, cashews, salt, maple syrup, and Chinese five-spice powder. Blend until smooth. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.

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

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 li...

Love this... yum. Made per recipe except had almond milk in fridge... used that. Had to buy more cashews this week to make it again
