Creamy cauliflower spread

If you love sandwiches, wraps and pita pockets but have decided to eat more of a plant-based diet and are looking for a tasty, satisfying snack or meal on the go, then you’ll love this recipe for creamy cauliflower spread.

It’s a fantastic substitution for tuna or egg spread and is delicious on a whole grain bun with a few fresh peas, spring onion and a squeeze of lemon.

The spread can also be used as a dip with vegetable sticks and seed crackers.
