as much as i love smørrebrød and its many toppings, there are some i try to avoid. liver pâté being one of them. it just makes me feel really heavy and gross after eating it; somehow so different than the thin smear of pâté in the banh mi i enjoyed in california. so when a soya spread appeared in netto this week, i knew i had to try it. on sale at 15kr for 150g, it was a little more than i wanted to pay for something that wasn't cheese made from real animals. worth a try, anyhow.
though the spread tasted good, it wasn't much more than the sum of its parts. besides the soya it pretty much tasted everything listed in the ingredients mashed together; tomato paste, carrot, potato flakes, garlic flakes, etc. a substitute for leverpostej, this is not. it would probably work better as a dip. however, i do appreciate organic soy products coming from germany (or was it austria..?) so here's hoping that they keep sending things like this over the border!
