GAEA Vegan Vegetable Spreads

by Anne Paddock

Tis the season of hors d’oeuvres with holiday parties and family get togethers. Instead of overly rich canapés and other finger food, consider offering healthier choices in bite-sized apps whose foundation includes vegetables. GAEA – a Greek company that specializes in olives, olive oil, and Greek food products – makes vegetable spreads that come in two delicious plant-based flavors:

Kalamata Olive:  A black olive tapenade made of Kalamata olives, sundried tomato flakes, black olives, green olives, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, grapemust, garlic, basil, and wild oregano. The focus here is on olives – the high seasoned slightly salty olive spread that tastes fantastic on baguette slices.GAEA_Kalamata_Olive_Spread

Smoked Eggplant:  A creamy eggplant spread made of smoked eggplant, flame roasted red peppers, extra virgin olive oil, sesame seeds, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, salt, garlic, parsley, cumin, and pepper. Eggplant is center stage with a smoky flavor enhanced by seasoning and red peppers. A delicious combination to also spread on toasted baguette pieces.GAEA_Smoked_Eggplant_Spread

Made in Greece, these vegetable spreads are dairy-free and made with non-GMO verified ingredients. So, grab a jar and enjoy on your favorite toasted baguette slices. Add a parsley leaf and serve. Each 3.5 ounce jar sells for about $3 at www.luckyvitamin.com.Gaea_Vegetable_Spreads
