  • Sunflower or Pumpkin Seed Pate

    This stuff is SOOOO awesome!! Use as a dip or spread.

    Use optional ingredients only if tolerated by your bladder.

    Sunflower or Pumpkin Seed Pate

    1 1/2 cups raw unsalted sunflower or pumpkin seeds (or a combo of the two)
    1/4 to 1/2 cup water
    2 stalks celery, chopped
    handful of fresh parsley
    1/2 cup sliced leek (optional)
    salt to taste (optional)
    1/4 tsp white pepper (optional)

    Throw everything in a blender or food processor and puree til it's as smooth as you like. It should be very thick, but add more water if needed. If using a blender you will need to stop and scrape the sides and rearrange everything throughout the process to get it thoroughly blended.

    Spread on celery sticks, crackers, rice cakes, sandwiches, etc, use as a dip, or eat it straight out of the bowl.

        Hands down, these are the tastiest and prettiest things I've made in a while.
        We had these wraps for dinner tonight. Tweeked the wraps a bit and added some cooked brown rice instead of the salad mix in the original recipe. Tweeked the pate a bit was really good.

        1 C Raw pumpkin seed
        3 cloves roasted garlic
        Sea salt to taste.

        Toast the pumpkin seeds in a pan wih some sea salt then puree them in a food processor along with the roasted garlic and enough water to make it smooth.
