Five Vegan Dips, Sauces and Spreads

The world is a better place with dips and sauces in it. More specifically, vegan dips and sauces. That is why we went searching for a great list of vegan dip recipes to share. We have some good ones here along with sauces and spreads as well.

Just recently, I attended a small get together with some my college friends. One of them recounted a group therapy session for their Health Psychology class. The organizers of the therapy decided to have a salad buffet for their therapy. Those who were non-vegan had to eat the prepared food which were lettuce, mango puree, white onions, tomato and many more. The mango puree was used a salad dip and it came as a surprise for many that it was very delicious.

What lesson can we learn from this? Vegan dips could turn the entire world vegan. Hey, it could happen.

Delicious, scrumptious curry.

This my attempt at making a haiku about curry. The first time I have tried the food was when I traveled outside of my hometown for the first time. I liked the smell and asked for the server to give me their version of curry and BOOM, it was love at first taste. From then on, I tried making vegan curry base sauce to incorporate into some of dishes.

I have learned from watching my mother cook food; she always says that if there is someone who doesn’t like it then something must have went wrong. As a cook, it is our job to make sure that everyone is satisfied with the food being eaten. When I tried making my own tomato sauce for the first time, it turned out so-so. With constant practice, I was able to perfect it.
