Happy New Year! Its the time of the year we start our new years resolutions and try to eat a little bit healthier than during the holidays. For me this means i’ll be having tons of smoothies and lots of salads, but still have some snacks on the side. And even snacks can be healthy! This mushroom spread or dip can be a healthier way to have a midday snack, it is low fat and has many uses. You can spread it on some toast or use it as a pasta sauce, you could even have it over rice (i tried an highly recommend!) You can store leftovers in the fridge and it’ll keep for a couple of days.
Not only is it really delicious it is also really easy and quick to make, it literally took me only 10 minutes to whip this up. This savoury spread is a winner!
This dish holds a deeper message, never judge a book by its cover. Its not the most appealing thing to look at but it tastes delicious! If you are serving this to someone else just top it with some spring onions and ground chilli, or something else to make it look a bit more appealing.
Ill be using this spread in some other recipes so stay tuned for that.
- 250 grams mushrooms
- 1 onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1/2 chilli pepper
- 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
- 4 tbsp non dairy milk
- 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika powder (optional)
- 1 sprig thyme (optional)
- to taste salt + pepper
- Chop the mushrooms, onions and garlic and saute them over medium heat. After two minutes add the thyme and cook for another 3 minutes.
- After everything is cooked throw everything in a blender or food processor. i used a magic bullet so i had to let it cool down a bit. Process it until you get a smooth paste, add less fluid for a thicker spread.
