Sunflower Seed Pate (Vegan "Fish" Pate)


  • 2 cups sunflower seeds
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Capers

  • 1 tsp Paprika Powder
  • Fresh Parsley

  1. Toast the sunflower seeds in a dry pan for a few minutes, until they are just starting to brown.
