If you're looking for a delicious and easy vegan spread that's also full of fiber and nutrients, you have to try this Charoset recipe! While it's traditionally served as a symbolic food during Passover, it's so tasty and healthy that it deserves to be enjoyed all year round.
200g almonds or ground almonds
2 apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup date syrup (or maple syrup)
1/4 cup red wine
Water (if needed, see notes below)
Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until a smooth mixture has formed. This may take a few minutes, so be patient. If needed, add a few splashes of water to help with the blending. Keep in mind that some people prefer a chunky consistency, while others prefer it smooth and spreadable.
Once you've reached your desired consistency, place the spread in a jar or airtight container and refrigerate. It should keep for at least a week.
You can use any type of nuts you like or have on hand. Just keep in mind that different nuts have different textures and flavours, so your spread may turn out slightly different each time you make it.
If you don't have date syrup, you can use maple syrup or honey instead. Just keep in mind that honey is not vegan.
If you don't have red wine, you can use grape juice or even water instead. The wine adds a nice depth of flavour, but it's not essential.
This Charoset recipe is not only delicious and vegan, but it's also dairy-free and gluten-free, making it a great option for anyone with dietary restrictions. Spread it on toast, crackers, or use it as a dip for veggies - the possibilities are endless!
