3 Bread Spreads from Savory to Sweet

3 Bread Spreads from Savory to Sweet

After our holiday, we all agreed that there is no better bread as the self-made one at home.

Since you cannot always take everything with you while traveling, you have to find other options.
Traveling is also intended to look beyond the horizon, right?

Sometimes one discovers new ideas or finds out that the traditional things are still the best.

But let's not talk about bread today, but rather about what kind of delicious "things" you can use to top your slice of bread with.

Instead of sausage, cheese or highly sweetened jams, self-made spreads with healthy ingredients are a real alternative.
Serve them on delicious homemade raw crackers, our home-baked bread or crispbread, and you are on the safe side.

Our sons love to pile up their toppings as high and colorful as possible.
We always offer them fresh wild herbs, sprouts, cucumber, tomatoes and tasty spreads.


There is a wide variety of spreads offered in stores.

However, I am a very conscientious and critical buyer and always read all the ingredients first.

If I find additives like sugar, E numbers or other chemicals, I put it quickly back in the shelf.

Usually, we almost exclusively buy fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds and legumes.
From time to time, the kids like to buy a spread.
But most of all, I enjoy being creative and like to try my own recipes with different ingredients and combinations.

Today we want to show you how quickly and easily you can make such a spread in no time.
For this, we have considered three recipes from savory to sweet.

Hearty Sunflower Seed - Cucumber Spread


200g sunflower seeds
1 onion
5 fresh sage leaves
1 pressed clove of garlic
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
a pinch of sea salt and pepper
1 small chopped cucumber
a few fresh herbs

How to do it:

Soak the sunflower seeds overnight.
In the morning, rinse properly and blend together with the pressed garlic, lemon juice, onion, salt, pepper and the chopped sage leaves in the food processor until creamy.
Cut the cucumber in small cubes and add together with the herbs and nutritional yeast to the spread.

Bean-Pepper Spread


1 half diced red bell pepper
240g white beans
1 pressed clove of garlic
1 finely chopped onion
a pinch of sea salt and pepper
fresh herbs

How to do it:

Add bell pepper, beans, garlic, onion, salt and pepper to the food processor and pulse briefly.
Do not blend to much, so it still remains somewhat lumpy.
Sprinkle with fresh herbs.

Sweet Fig - Banana Spread

I have to confess, I'm an early bird.
I love getting up really early in the morning when the rest of the family is still asleep.
That gives me the time to prepare a nice breakfast and to enjoy the silence in the kitchen.
When we have time in the morning and noone has to rush out of the house, we enjoy a delicious breakfast with a large bowl of oat porridge and fruits, freshly made juice, and homemade wholemeal rolls for the men.
Sometimes, I also prepare a sweet spread such as this one:


150g dried figs
50ml freshly squeezed orange juice
1 very ripe banana
1 pinch of cinnamon

How to do it:

Cut the dried figs in small pieces and soak overnight in the orange juice.
The next morning, mix the figs with orange juice, banana and cinnamon in a blender.

We hope this inspired you a little to try our creations or you might even want to create your own recipes.


Have a happy week!
