Gourmet Creations is a local company from Langley, BC, who specialize in versatile vegetable spreads. They are a nutritious alternative to other spreads on the market. The spreads contain no gluten or dairy products, and are low in salt, sugar, and fat.
You can find them at various stores in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The three big main stores are Target (Canadian) , IGA (BC), and T&T stores (BC). You can also find them at many trade shows in BC too. Last time I saw them at the Fraser Valley Food Show.
There are currently 6 variations of their Simply Vegetable Spreads:
- Butternut Curry
- Black Bean Salsa
- Carrot Ginger
- Mexican Chilli
- Red Pepper
- Sundried Tomato
Vegetable Spreads are versatile for cooking or could just be eaten as a snack. But, when you will add it to your dishes, it can enhance the taste.
Butternut Curry has the familiar curry flavour we all know and love. It goes great as an addition to a wrap or a sandwich to enhance it.
Black Bean Salsa doesn’t look appealing when you first lay eyes on it since it has a lumpy brown texture. You get a lot of the black bean taste, so it could work well in soups or tacos.
Carrot Ginger really has a kick of flavour when you first open the package. It has a beautiful orange colour that pops when adding it into a dish, but personally I found the ginger to be too much for me.
Mexican Chili is quite chunky compared to the other dips. It also doesn’t look very appealing, but is quite delicious with crackers.
Red Pepper looks really pretty with its vibrant red colour and seeds inside. It is slightly sweet.
Sundried Tomatoes were my favourite. It has a strong smokey tomato taste. It looks more like a paste and you could totally use it in pasta or soup.
Overall, each flavour was quite unique but they are very versatile when it comes adding some flavour to your cooking. Each pack retails for about $4.99 in stores.
Stay tuned, in the coming days, we will be doing a giveaway for a gift basket of their yummy spreads.
