Recipe Created By: Mary Beth Blackmon


default

Ingredients

1 pinch salt (optional)
1 1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup cold (spring) water
1 lb dairy and soy-free margarine

Directions

Cut margarine into pieces. Put into food processor and turn it on. Slowly add oil through chute. Slowly add water. Add pinch of salt if desired. Mix until smooth.

Notes

I use sunflower oil, nice and light.

This is a shortening substitute and works fine for many things. It cuts down on the amount of hydrogenated fats from straight margarine.

Substitutions


Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.

Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.
