Sunflower Shoot Spread


  • Sunflower shoots (tender) – 2 cups, with stems

  • Sunflower seeds – 2 tbsp., soaked in water for 15-20 minutes

  • Cashewnuts – 4-5, more if you would like it more creamy

  • Nutritional yeast flakes – 2 tbsp. (or as per taste)

  • Sea salt – to taste

  • Water – just enough to blitz and bring the mix to a spreadable consistency


  1. Place in a chutney grinder with the sunflower seeds, cashew nuts, a little salt and water.  Blitz till creamy or textural, as per your liking.  Spoon the mix from the sides and blitz again till the required consistency is reached.

  2. Remove into a bowl, add the nutritional yeast flakes, and adjust the salt and water.

  3. A drizzle of extra virgin olive would not hurt.  Some crispy capers or a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds are very tasty too.
