Are you looking for something for cooking, baking or spreading on bread?

I usually substitute oil (usually olive or canola) in recipes that call for margarine in baking and cooking. If I really need a solid fat, like for buttercream type frosting, I use coconut oil.

For spreading on bread, I've started using Parkay Squeeze. I also sometimes use veganaise, or a bit of olive oil.

There are several recipes out there, but I'm not sure that it's worth the effort if you are going to use it as an ingredient. Fancy homemade vegan butter would probably be great for spreading on bread, though.

yeah i use the recipe from Homemade Vegan Pantry for spreading. i dont bake with it mainly because it seems like a really expensive version of butter to bake with.

Thanks for responses.
Beanitarian -- I'm looking for something to spread on bread primarily (but also would like to find cooking substitute).
Am in UK at present and do not have access to Homemade Vegan Pantry cookbook -- though that seems to be a winner for a recipe!

I'm in the UK, too, and as far as I'm aware, there's no palm-oil free marg to be found.

I made this recipe just yesterday, though... and it's really good! It's super simple, too... so I plan to make it for all my butter needs from now on. It works out super cheap to make, too, if you can get cheap coconut oil from an Asian supermarket.

The only thing that's not readily available is the lecithin, but I had some anyway, which I originally bought from Amazon.

I'm (kinda) in the UK too and Disappearing Ink is right. No vegan palm oil free butter subs to be found.

I have this recipe bookmarked for when I have a kitchen again http://www.vegan.com/recipes/bryanna-cl ... an-butter/

In the meantime I'm just buying the more ethical options from this list because subbing oil / avocado / mayo really doesn't work for me on bread / toast / sandwiches http://www.ethicalconsumer.org/buyersgu ... reads.aspx

So what kind of serious problem we get if we use palm-oil?
