SIDE NOTES:

~ Adapted from “1000 Vegetarian Recipes.”

~ This spread is on the sweet side, so use less dates if you like it milder.

 For those avoiding certain foods, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Vegan, Grain Free, Raw

Personally, I do not recommend using “fake” cream cheese, but for those who like to use it….Tofutti (the most common vegan cream cheese) is dairy free, but out of 7 flavors, only 1 does not contain hydrogenated oil. It’s “plain” flavor in a yellow tub. There is also a “plain” flavor that DOES contain hydrogenated oil so look for the yellow container. (if you care) (and you should!)
