Nut-Cashew or Almond-The Essential Spreads The Best Substitutes For Butter-Mayonnaise Or Other Saturated Fats

Yogurt Herb Dressing Recipe

I call them the SUPER TRIO and they are, from left: Nut BUTTER (cashew or almond), AVOCADO SPREAD (plain smashed avocado with some sea salt) and, the king of them all, TAHINI (crushed sesame seeds PASTE mixed with water, lemon juice and garlic). They can be used as a spread, for breakfast, for lunches in sandwiches or hamburgers, for snacks and as salad dressings. They are very nutritious, delicious and very satisfying! You can add more or less liquids depending how you will use them. For a salad dressing, make them liquidier. As a spread for sandwiches make them thicker. It is totally up to you.
