Accidentally Vegan: Fratelli Mantova Artichoke Paste!

Accidentally Vegan: Fratelli Mantova Artichoke Paste!

I discovered this super creamy vegan spread while appetizer shopping for a party.  (The chocolate shot glass party, to be exact!)   It’s imported from Italy and is a yummy spread for breads.  I fell in love with this product because:

  • it is SO yummy
  • it doesn’t contain any garlic (helpful for FODMAP diet concerns)
  • it achieves a super creamy texture without any Parmesan cheese
  • it is shelf stable for easy storage.

I served it on crostini for the party, but I’ve also enjoyed it at home on celery sticks or even as a topping for potatoes. This artichoke paste is super versatile!

I found this accidentally vegan item at Whole Foods near the pasta.  If you don’t have a Whole Foods near you, or you prefer to order your groceries online, you can also buy it online through Amazon.
