What you’ll need~

Food Processor, filtered water, serving bowl

INGREDIENTS

1 CUP RAW ALMONDS (due to USDA regulations almonds must be flash pasteurized – usually up to 118 degrees F but are still considered raw) soaked 8-12 hours in clean (filtered) water

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds soaked 2 hours and sprouted 1 day (rinse 2-3 times daily)

1/4 cup raw sesame tahini

juice from 1 lemon

2 garlic cloves finely chopped

2 tbsp. coarsely chopped parsley

2 tbsp. finely chopped basil

1 tbsp. finely chopped rosemary

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/4 c. water if necessary to add to food processor

 

METHOD

1. Mix almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame tahini, lemon juice in the food processor and process.  If too thick and granular slowly pour in water to a smooth, pate-like texture.

2. Add in herbs and salt.

3. Scoop into a serving bowl and serve with a side of wholesome crackers like Flackers or Mary’s Gone Crackers.
