Depending on how much water you add to the mix, this dressing can be runny or heavy and thick. If you use less water, you get a perfect rich creamy dip for some crispy carrot or celery sticks. Made from local affordable ingredients including sunflower seeds, olive oil, lemon, garlic, herbs and yeast (avoid if you are vegan), this creamy salad dressing will make your family devour their veggies!
1. Gather the ingredients
- 1 cup of (organic unroasted) sunflower seeds
- 2 cups of filtered water
- ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ cup of yeast
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1 garlic clove
- A pinch of salt and pepper
2. Wash the seeds
Wash the sunflower seeds in a colander to get rid of any dirt the seeds might have.
3. Activate the seeds
Put the seeds in a bowl and leave them to soak overnight or a few hours, to activate them and make them easier to process.
