Soak sunflower seeds 8-12 hours, drain, allow to sprout for 3-4 hours (leave out on counter) then thoroughly rinse and drain removing as many of the thin inner husks that float to the top as possible. In a food processor, process the sunflower seeds, lemon juice, scallions, tahini, liquid amino’s, onion, parsley, garlic and cayenne until the mixture is a smooth paste.

When thoroughly blended taste and adjust the seasoning. The pâté will develop a stronger garlic taste in a few hours.

Yields a large mixing bowl of pâté. (approximately 8 cups)
