walnut-date spread, polenta

for someone who always prepares meals on the go spreads have been one of my
passions. besides the recipe which i shamelessly addapted from the
millenium cookbook below(which i continue to pour over and admire as one of
the most amazing cookbooks- vegan and non-vegen i have ever seen) i also
found another spread in vegan vittles, a small vegan cookbook which has
many recipes that can be adapted- that one was more basic and you combined
a cup of boiled, soft carrots with two tablespoons of fake peanut butter-
this stuff is great and only has three grams of fat- i found it at wild
oats but it can be hard to get anywhere else- with a little nutmeg and a
teaspoon of cinnamon. i would also like to mention this great new packaged
polenta- it comes in five different flavors(i'm sure you'll see it in your
store) and has no fat and is low in calories. its delicious- i made lunch
in under a minute today by cutting off three slices, throwing them into a
skillet with some aduki beans, tamari and pepper (it was the tomato- garlic
polenta)- the rest is just what was left in the fridge- i don't have hardly
anything. anyway, here it is-great on bagels

Walnut (or Almond)- Date Spread

1cup dates pitted
1 cup walnuts or almonds toasted
(i didn't tost them and it was okay)
1 tablespoon light miso
10 ounces of mori-nu lite silken tofu
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt

soak dates in warm water until soft(15min) drain and in food processor
combine dates with the rest of ingredients until pureed- will keep for just
under a week
