Faux Gras – A Must Try!
Dairy free dips can be a challenge when you don’t have time to make everything from scratch. Things like artichoke dip, cheese spreads and cream based dips are off the table, so what’s left? Sure there’s ready-made salsa, hummus and guacamole, but what if you seek different flavors?
Enter the Regal Vegan. Regal Vegan is a Brooklyn based food company offering catering services, consulting and nutrition workshops in addition to a few packaged products. Their first product to market was Faux Gras, a toasted walnut lentil pâté. It’s a rich vegan spread made with whole foods and healthy ingredients. Faux Gras is creamy and delicious, with a surprisingly complex flavor considering the small ingredient list. It’s perfect on crackers, toast or raw vegetables.
Faux Gras is marketed as a humane alternative to foie gras, but it’s truly delicious as a stand-alone product, substitution value aside. Give it a try, and you’ll be hooked!
