Sunflower Seed Pate Recipe
Your quick, easy and healthy guide to sunflower seed pate
This sunflower seed pate is one of my absolute favourites. Made in five minutes this is frequently on the menu at home. The texture is a little coarse and it goes well with crisp vegetables and crackers — and a glass of wine or cold beer. Or, use it as a base for a wholegrain bread sandwich.
