Sunny Curry Pate
This is one of the easiest things to make, provided you have a food processor (and you can get one for about 30 bucks btw), and a default for me eating raw. It’s great on salads, rolled up like sushi with raw nori, or in a sandwich with raw “bread”.
The trick is to think about it the day before you want to make it. That’s when you want to dump some raw sunflower seeds into a jar, cover them with a generous amount of water, and let them sit overnight. After that, everything takes less than 5 minutes, and that includes cleaning the food processor when you’re done!
This is a VERY flexible recipe. All measurements given here are estimates – truth be told, I never measure anything while making this. There’s no need!
onion or scallion
apple cider vinegar
(Day before) Step 1: Soak sunflower seeds (I think there’s about a cup and a half here before they were soaked – they expand on soaking)
Step 2: Take out food processor.
Step 3: Gather ingredients.
Step 4: Drain sunflower seeds and put into food processor.
Step 5: Add other ingredients to the food processor. You can see from the picture that for this amount I used one scallion (I ended up using 2), 3 garlic cloves, about 5 sundried tomatoes, a heaping amount of curry powder, and some salt, pepper, a few spoonfuls of olive oil and drizzle of ACV.
Step 6: Blend. You will have to stop it a few times to scrape down the sides. Now is the time to add more olive oil if the consistency is not pate-like enough.
Step 7: TASTE! Does it need more curry? More vinegar for some bite? More onion? I often add red bell pepper. Play with it!
Step 8: Put it into a container and stick it in the fridge, where it will keep a few days. Better yet, eat some!
Step 9: Wash the food processor and enjoy how easy it was to make something so yummy.
