Sunseed Pate

by Sherri Koehler on March 20, 2010

This raw pate is served at Proper Eats in St. Johns. Christie & I order it nearly every time we’re there. Piper, one of the owners, wrote down a recipe for me on one visit.

The Stuff

  • 3/4 cup soaked, raw sunflower seeds (soaked at least 6 hours)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 Tablespoon sundried tomato (optional)
  • 3 Tablespoons raw tahini
  • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water (may need more or less depending upon desired consistency)

The Making

Pulse soaked seeds, avocado, tahini, spices, lemon juice and tomato in a food processor to incorporate roughly. Add in water a little at a time and keep processing until you have
a smooth consistency.

Serve with pear and apple wedges, veggies, raw crackers, etc.
