    Indeed. I'e not experimented much with dairy-free "butter" apart from a little baking or spread on toast. I'l have a think.

    Lots of possibilities for nut butters (assuming they count ). Obviously peanut butter comes to mind but there are many other nut butters.

    I love nut butters. My favourite are almond or peanut mixed with seeds. Has to be with no added sugar.

    I'm researching making my own vegan 'butter' which can be done with coconut oil and vinegar and a few other ingredients.

    I can't include nut butters, because they have a fundamentally different primary use from dairy butters. While you can spread both on a slice of toast, when was the last time you melted peanut butter in a pan to cook an omelet? I don't think Jacques Pepin would approve. :cook:

    Well, I've made vegan butter! It is setting in the fridge so I'll have buttered toast tomorrow. It was easy to make but I made an error in my shopping so I'll be able to improve on it.

    The big problem I'm having with this challenge is developing original recipes (which is my thing). Everything I can think of seems to have been done before! Anyway - the quest continues.
