From: The Raw Gourmet Recipe Corner Nomi Shannon AKA The Raw Gourmet This recipe IMHO (in my humble opinion) has it all: nutritious, delicious (alter seasonings for your taste buds), versatile, inexpensive (when you use sunflower seeds), good quality protein, and (drum roll please) lasts up to three weeks in your refrigerator! This can be made in a food processor? my personal favorite is the 14 cup Cuisinart... mine is getting on in years now and I have my eye on the newest Cuisinart which has speed settings and several container sizes. You can make this recipe in a Vita Mix blender as well. You might need to add more liquid. If you have a choice, use a food processor.

Recipe Ingredients for Sunflower Pate

3 cups sunflower seeds, soaked 8-12 hours = Sprouted for 2-4 hours
1 cup lemon juice, fresh squeezed
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1/4 cup raw tahini
2 tbsp soy sauce (OR 2 Tbsp Nama shoyu OR 1/4 cup liquid aminos OR Pinch of sea salt with additional water, OR none at all)
2 slices red onion, cut in chunks
4 tbsp parsley, coarsely chopped
2 tbsp garlic (2-3 medium cloves garlic, coarsely chopped)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or more to taste)

Recipe Directions for Sunflower Pate

  1. Soak sunflower seeds 8-12 hours,(overnight works best) drain, allow to sprout for 3-4 hours (leave out on counter) no longer or it will taste bitter for this recipe then thoroughly rinse and drain removing as many of the thin inner husks that float to the top as possible.

  2. If you are not ready to use the sprouted seeds (no tail will be visible not to worry) put them in the refrigerator until you are, this is important for this particular recipe.

  3. In a food processor, process the sunflower seeds, lemon juice, scallions, tahini, liquid aminos, onion, parsley, garlic and cayenne until the mixture is a smooth paste. When thoroughly blended taste and adjust the seasoning.

  4. The taste of the pate will mellow out in a few hours. This is definitely best made in advance of eating.

  5. Yields: a large mixing bowl of pate. (Approximately 8 cups)
