Raw Sunflower Seed Paté


We have been discovering some delicious raw delights during this current detox/cleanse. This was adapted from a recipe at The Raw Gourmet. I'm a big fan of anything sunflower seedy, and this paté has a very smooth richness that makes for a tasty, filling spread or dip.

Raw Sunflower Seed Paté

1 1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds, soaked 8-12 hours
1/3-1/2 cup fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
handful Scallions, chopped
3 Tbsp Tahini
1 Tbsp Nama Shoyu
1/3 cup water
pinch Sea Salt, to taste
pinch Cayenne Pepper, to taste
1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

After soaking sunflower seeds, drain and rinse them, and add all ingredients together in a food processor or blender and blend into a smooth paste. Will keep in refrigerator for 1 week.

Seasoning can be added/adjusted - the soaked sunflower seed mixture is adaptable to many flavors. The flavor of this certainly intensified overnight.

We served it on dehydrated onion bread crackers from Better Life Cuisine in Santa Monica - awesome.
