Zesty Sunflower Seed Pate – Raw Food Recipe

In my recent kitchen adventures I decided I was going to make raw sushi…no, not raw fish but sushi with no rice suitable for a raw food diet. I like trying a variety of recipes and that includes raw food recipes too.

I’ve read about making rice substitutes with parsnips and cauliflower but I wanted a pate that would be flavourful enough so the sushi wouldn’t need a dipping sauce.

I’m pleased with the result of this pate…

Zesty Sunflower Seed Pate

1.5 cups raw sunflower seeds (soak and rinse twice for 24 hrs)

2T dried parsley

1 green onion chopped

2T raw tahini

1/4 fresh lemon juice

3 cloves of garlic, minced

pinch of black pepper

pinch of paprika

2t onion powder

1T nutritional yeast

1/3 of a red pepper, chopped

hot sauce to taste (optional)

Run this all through the food processor until it is mostly smooth but still a bit chunky.

This is perfect as is but I used it as my base for my raw sushi…that post coming soon!
