Raw Green Cucumber Spread
2/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, large stems removed
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup fresh greens, chopped (I used collard greens)
1/2 medium sized cucumber, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced (optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender (using pulse/chop mode) and process until mixed well. You may need to add a splash of water to help it come together.
Use as a dip for fresh veggies or a spread for toast.
Makes ~2 cups
It was light and refreshing and hit the spot!
