OK so it seems I'm allergic to olive oil. I've eliminated it from my diet for the past week or so, and the allergic symptoms I've been experiencing for two years are abating.
The only problem is Earth Balance contains olive oil. And I LOVE to bake. I do NOT use margarine as a spread, EVER, I use it only for baking and making cheesy broccoli casserole. Culinary experts, i need your help.
It looked like I might have a good sub in Spectrum Spread, but the HFS told me that the manufacturer has told them not to expect any more shipments of it. Perfect timing.
Fleishmann's margarine is not vegan here, although I believe i have read it is in the U.S. I'm in Canada, so I have fewer options. I am not keen on using margarines that contain genetically modified ingredients.
We do not get a brand I have heard you all talk about called Smart Balance here, and I don't know if it contains olive oil or is vegan anyway.
What can I use in place of store bought vegan margarine for the purposes I described above? Things that require 1/4 cup+ of margarine, not a teaspoon. Or are there any known vegan margarines that I have just completely missed, and could possibly start lobbying them to send their product to canada?
