This is a variation of Edna's Delish spread. Vegespread was also introduced several years ago by many community members in old threads. It attempts to replicate the well known, but generally unacceptable Vegemite of Australian fame. Adding prune juice will help to blacken the mix. The soy sauce and miso which help to blacken the spread makes it unsuitable for all type Bs, and type O non-secretors.
