Even if cranberry sauce is already slated to be on your holiday table, this savory nut butter with cranberry is one worth making. We make a smooth paste of our mildly nutty hemp hearts and buttery pecans and then blend a touch of fresh cranberries into the butter. Notes of thyme, sage, and pepper keep the spread savory, but there’s also a satisfying touch of sweet. This vegan spread is a tasty addition to your plant-based Thanksgiving menu—or any holiday meal. Add this delicious plant-based Thanksgiving spread to crackers, fresh apple slices, or even your favorite rolls. Save any leftovers of the fresh sauce and add a dollop to a snacking platter; at breakfast, top pancakes or waffles; stir the spread into oatmeal or your favorite plant-based yogurt. It’s even delicious as a topping for plant-based desserts.
