With holidays right around the corner, a good butter substitute is the urgent need of the hour! AF (Allergy Friendly) does not mean that our sugar cookies, cakes and breads should taste gross 🙂
So, here is a little secret from my kitchen to yours…psst – ‘Earth Balance’ range of products!
For over a year now I have been using Earth Balance soy-free spread. It is so yummy that the entire family has switched over from dairy-based spreads. This is great but cannot be used for cooking, sauteeing and baking. Of course, Earth Balance has a solution for that too. Little wonder – I love this company 🙂 The world’s first 100% Vegan butter sticks (shortening) are just awesome – http://www.earthbalancenatural.com/#/products/shortening/. Aesthetics is a huge part of product appeal for me! It is a pleasure to see individually wrapped vegan butter sticks – easy to measure out and store. Dont expect it to taste and feel like butter but it definitely cooks without lending any objectionable flavor to the dish.
The coconut spread is naturally, dairy-free and soy-free. However, if you are not a huge fan of coconut flavor, you may not like this a whole lot. But, I would still recommend a try. After all – it was one of the products that won the 2011 VegNews awards 🙂
However, the Vegan Mayo is an awesome product in terms of taste, texture and flavor. In fact, it is hard to tell the difference and so worth a try.
Earth Balance products are available in major grocery stores like Wegman’s, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and health food stores. To find a location nearest you:
