Healthy Recipes: Vegan Herb Spread

Our vegan herb spread is not only extremely healthy, but consists of only a few ingredients and is prepared very quickly. Depending on the season and your preferences, you can prepare your spread with different herbs and spices individually. As a basic ingredient we use sunflower seeds. We have refined our recipe variant of the herb spread with parsley, chives and garlic. However, you can conjure up a variety of spreads – for example, with olives, pumpkin, zucchini or fresh horseradish.

In organic supermarkets you can find a variety of ready-made spreads, but they often contain unhealthy additives such as sugar or bad fats like sunflower oil. With this recipe you can easily and quickly prepare a healthy and very tasty spread. Instead of sunflower seeds, you can also use cashews or nuts.

Did you know that sunflower seeds are real powerhouses? Young sunflowers always turn their heads towards the sun – they symbolize joy and vitality and they pass this on to us with their seeds as food. The healthy seeds have a positive influence on the cardiovascular system and blood circulation and have a rejuvenating effect on skin, hair and cells due to the antioxidants they contain! Also for healthy bones and teeth helps the consumption of the seeds.

There are no limits to your taste buds when it comes to ingredients – try out which combinations are perfect for you.

    The recipe overall looks healthy and delicious. I’m wondering though, why you specifically put canola oil in as an ingredient? That is a terrible oil for health, usually is GMO and very inflammatory. Avocado or olive oil would be better for health….just saying.
