Vegan Shopping Basket – The Best Vegan Spreads

by Laura Barns

6min read

There's more to vegan spreads than houmous (I know, it took us a while to believe it, too). From sweet to savoury, spicy to sour, there are loads of great options to slather over your favourite foods. Here's our pick of the best.

Marmite

Ok, I'm going to level with you. For me, Marmite is the food of the devil. But I felt the pressure to add this one in here. That's kind of all I have to say.

Best for: no

Average price: £2.60

Availability: 5/5 

Taste: no/5 

Overall rating: no/5

Lotus Biscuit Spread Smooth

From the downright ugly to the HEAVENLY, this stuff is sent directly from angels. We love it spread thickly on fresh sourdough bread when we're feeling fancy, and on Oreos or straight from the tub when we're not.

Best for: literally any occasion, any time, anywhere

Average price: £2.30

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Sainsbury's Caramelised Onion Houmous

Trying to pick only one houmous to feature was a really tough job, but Sainsbury's own brand *just* clinched it for us thanks to the extensive range of tasty flavours. We love this one in particular as what could be better than hummus and caramelised onions?!

Best for: all of your delicious hummus needs

Average price: £1.40

Availability: 3/5

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Sweet Freedom Chocolate Spread

We promised you sweet and this certainly ticks that box. Though surprisingly, it's a light option at only 13 calories per tsp. It's also palm oil-free, contains no GMOs and is high in fibre. Sweet indeed.

Best for: little ones who struggle with dairy

Average price: £3.00

Availability: 2/5

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 3/5

Vego Fine Hazelnut Crunchy Chocolate Spread

If you're missing Nutella, you need to invest in this little tub. Open the lid and you instantly get a decadent waft of indulgence that resembles Ferrero Rochers. The best bit? It's more planet-kind that Nutella, as it's organic, fair-trade AND palm oil-free.

Best for: Nutella lovers

Average price: £3.99

Accessibility: 2/5 

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5

Pip & Nut Crunchy Maple Peanut Butter

Another one that was tough to choose, peanut butter is basically a major food group for vegans. We love the range from Pip & Nut, and always have at least one bucket floating around in the kitchen. This flavour has a hint of sweetness that we're so on board with.

Best for: peanut butter-lovers who are feeling slightly adventurous

Average price: £2.30

Availability: 3/5

Taste: 5/5 

Overall rating: 4/5 

Hartley's Best Strawberry Jam

There are loads of great jams out there, but thanks to the availability and range from Hartley's, this is the one we went for. It's everything you want from a strawberry jam – it's sweet, juicy and hits all the spots.

Best for: your morning toast or crumpets

Average price: £2.70

Availability: 5/5 

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 3/5 

My Raw Joy Carawmel Spread

In the mood for something fancy? This Carawmel- Raw caramel-flavoured almond spread, is super creamy and ground to perfection. It's also free of palm oil and is made with organic activated almonds, Bourbon vanilla and coconut palm sugar.

Best for: a special indulgence

Average price: £8.99

Availability: 2/5 

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 3/5 

Stay tuned for the next instalment in our Vegan Shopping Basket series.
