Walnut Olive Spread

Vegan Sandwich Spread Recipe

Walnut Olive Spread

Delicious Walnut Olive Spread makes a perfect vegan sandwich filling. We loved it in Walnut Quesadillas, with spinach, arugula, and shredded mozzarella style vegan cheese.

This vegan sandwich spread recipe is also very tasty on any kind of cracker, or straight off the spoon. Why not?

Make a double recipe if you need to serve more people. Any extra will keep well in the fridge tightly sealed.

Recipe Tips:

Soaking softens walnuts and removes the bitter coating. Skip this step if you don't care about that.

Olives are salty, so is nutritional yeast, and sunflower seed butter has a little salt too. So this spread is nicely salted without additional salt.

If you want low sodium, leave out the nutritional yeast and use unsalted nut butter.
