Sunshine Seed Dip


I made little nori wraps with this spread and ate some with carrot sticks as well. It was a little too celery flavored for my taste, so I added some garlic powder and more salt. Next time I might just use 2 stalks of celery and more onion. But I thought this was a great dip, that did not involve too many nuts; which is always a concern.

Sunshine Seed Dip

recipe from Casey’s Lifestyle Raw

4 stalks celery, roughly chopped
¼ red onion
½ bunch fresh parsley
½ bunch fresh dill
½ cup sunflower seeds (I soaked mine for 6 hours)
1/3 carrot, roughly chopped
Juice of ½ lemon
1 teaspoon dulse flakes
Himalayan crystal salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Optional: pinch of cayenne pepper

Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender until thick and well combined. You might need to add another tablespoon of lemon juice or pure water to get the mixture to blend.

    MMM I could see adding some avocados for creaminess. This was totally good, but strong on the veggies so if you wanted it more nut heavy you could add 1 cup of sunflower seeds instead of a half and it would be super creamy! Fun!!
