Sunny Seed Paté

It was lovely to gather with you Mamas this weekend!

Here's the sunny seed paté spread some of you asked about. I added tahini, a carrot, and some olive oil. The recipe is from The Avocado

Recipe for Simplicity - Sunflower Seed Pate

BASIC Recipe - Combine the following ingredients in a Food Processor (with the "S" blade):

  • 2 cups soaked raw sunflower seeds (ideally soaked for 4-6 hours, but less is okay if there is no time to plan)
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1-2 clove garlic (according to your own taste)
  • 2 TB nama shoyu (or substitute gluten-free tamari or Bragg's Liquid Aminos)
  • 1/2 TB cumin
  • dash of cayenne (or more to taste)

Tasty Additions (add some or all of the following):

  • 1/2 bunch of fresh parsley or cilantro
  • 1/2 small onion (about 1/4 cup)
  • 4+ kale leaves
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1-2 stalks of celery
  • 1/2-1 bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup raw tahini
