Ⓥ Vegan Kitchen: Sunflower Pâté Spread Ⓥ

This recipe is super simple, easy to make, super delicious, and quite versatile. It is also a healthy and tasty alternative to cream cheese or unhealthy spreads. It's also mostly raw! Double the healthiness!  
Use it as a dip, a sandwich spread, in wraps or nori rolls, in stuffed peppers, or whatever your heart desires! I've used this in grilled cheese sandwiches before with a bit of daiya, which admittedly lowers the healthy part but is still a great alternative to anything else and satisfies that comfort food craving at the same time.    

Sunflower Pâté Spread

1 1/2 c raw Sunflower Seeds, soaked overnight and rinsed (and sprouted if desired)
1/2 c fresh Lemon Juice
2 tbsp Tamari 
2 small Garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 tbsp Nutritional Yeast

Once your sunflowers seeds have been soaked and rinsed, throw all your ingredients into a food processor and blend until fairly smooth. Be sure to scrape down the sides every so often so you don't miss any seeds or garlic.

Keeps for about 2 weeks in the fridge.

  1. When soaking the sunflower seeds, do you peel them first, or leave them soaking with the shell? I'd really like to try this since I love using spread on bagels and toast!
