Yesterday I posted the recipe for my Buttermilk Oat Bread – today, I’m posting the first of two recipes for spreads that I mentioned there. This Beetroot Spread, below, can be prepared in just a few steps. (The recipe for the Pumpkin Lentil Spread can be found here.)

Store-bought vegetarian and vegan spreads – even organic versions! – often contain added sugars. For this reason, making your own spreads is usually a far better bet. My beetroot spread is also delicious with a little fresh grated horseradish mixed in. After spreading, feel free to toss a few fresh sprouts on top. Here’s the recipe:
