Types of spreads and basic ingredients

Spreads can be very varied, but the basic categories include:

- Creamy spreads: the basic ingredients include cream cheese, cottage cheese or mixtures of vegetable creams (e.g. cashew nut based) which serve as a base for various additives.

- Protein spreads: tuna, salmon, sardines, boiled eggs or even beans and chickpeas are excellent bases for rich and nutritious spreads.

- Vegetable spreads: avocado, roasted peppers, aubergines or tomatoes can form the base or be added for flavour and texture.

- Spices and herbs: fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, chives or spices such as cumin, coriander and paprika can enrich the flavour of any spread.
