13 Marmite recipes you’re going to love (we promise)

Marmite. A product where the ads hold some truth: ‘You either love it or hate it’. And I’ve yet to meet an individual who is undecided about it.

I love it. So, I’ve put together a collection of my favourite, alternative Marmite recipes, from around the web, which will make fellow Marmite lover’s tastebuds tingle (literally), and maybe even convert the haters.


13 Marmite recipes you’re going to love (we promise)

By definition, it doesn’t sound like the most appetising thing to put on your toast – a brown, salty, and tangy spread (which can prove tough to spread, but that’s another story). But, look at it with a different pair of eyes and you’ve got yourself the perfect savoury addition to a cheese sarnie, and a condiment that has an addictive salty kick. And it’s vegan, too.

Have a read, have a taste, and let us know if you manage to convert anyone.
