Spreads transform simple breads and toasts into lavish fare! This spread is a nice combo water-filled zucchini, and vitamin rich parsley pepped up with the flavours of lemon, chillies and walnuts. You would not head for fat-laden butter and cheese after you have tasted brown bread with this delectable spread!
