Sunflower Seed Tomato Spread (Vegan, Lactose-free, Gluten-free)
For this vegan and lactose-free recipe I’ve used soaked sunflower seeds which are very healthy and good for a balanced diet. I blended them for not too long so as to leave a bit of rustic texture to it.
- 110 g sunflower seeds soak these in water for approx. 8 hours, then rinse & drain
- 10 dried tomatoes soak these in in water for a few hours as well, then drain
- 160 g passata
- 1 heaped tsp basil
- 2-3 tsp ground paprika
- salt & pepper to taste
- a few pinches ground chili
Start by soaking the sunflower seeds in water for approx. 8 hours, then rinse and drain. Also soak the dried tomatoes for a few hours. Then drain.
Then simply blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Use within a few days. It also tastes great with different herbs and spices.
