Another juicy sandwich spread

25 Aug

I’m back with a new recipe for vegan alkaline food. Last time I blogged about lentil sandwich spread. This time I’m doing another spread – inspirered by a store bought one that I like. But as I found out it contained egg and sugar I wanted to try to make a homemade version.

Bean spread
100 grams of organic soy beans – soaked for 12 hours – and cook in boiling water for 45 mins with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. The baking soda is put in to soften the beans.

4 shallots – finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic
2 sticks of celery – finely chopped
Small handful of lovage (or other herb)
1-2 tomatoes – finely diced
Sunflower oil
Himalaya salt
Pepper
Lime juice
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons Tamarind (if you have) if bought in blocks with seeds – dissolve 2 tablespoons in 1 dl water for 30 – press off the tamarind from the seeds and drain.

Fry onion, garlic and celery for 5 min in sunflower oil – add the tomato and lovage and fry for another 5 mins.
Add the tamarind for the last minute.
Add the beans to the pan and season with salt, pepper, lime and nutmeg. Cook for 10 min on low heat – stir a couple of times.

Leave to cool and blend. Add some ekstra oil or water.

Have on homemade bread with out yeast – use baking soda instead. I’ll be blogging about bread at a later point.

You can also spread it on lettuces or other veggies or have it as a dip.
