Sunflower Mock 'Tuna'

Sunflower seeds are an amazing alternative to nuts for plant-based folks who want the protein, but don’t want to overdo (or can’t do) nuts.  By soaking and sprouting them first, we awaken additional nutritional value of the seeds and make them even more easily digested.  Allergies to sunflower seeds are a lot more rare than nut allergies, and they are also typically tolerated on the low-FODMAP plan.

I made this once for an omnivore who said if I didn’t tell him it wasn’t tuna, he never would have known.  That goes to show that anyone can enjoy this in a sandwich, on crackers, or as a part of a Buddha bowl. It makes a unique party dip or pâte, too.

I love this as part of a lunchtime meal that includes Sunflower Mock 'Tuna' on toasted gluten-free sourdough bread, microgreens, arugula, a drizzle of Smoky Aioli and a cup of tomato soup on the side.  Comfort food, modernized for a healthy lifestyle.
