Raw Sunflower Seed Pate and the Divine Spark of the Cosmos

Today we are going to shine like the sun, because this – my conscious kitchen friends – is no ordinary recipe… it is the ultimate vibration raising pate!

I soak the sunflower seeds overnight, which starts the spouting process. Soaking unleashes an incredible life force from a dormant, raw seed. It’s the same miraculous life force that wants to turn a humble seed into a glorious vibrant sunshine-yellow flower!

Seeds are essentially sleeping until they become activated. Soaking them in water wakes them up. So you aren’t just eating sunflower seeds anymore – you are eating a divine spark of the cosmos!

Benefits of soaking sunflower seeds before using

  1. Makes digestion so much easier (by neutralizing the phytates and enzyme inhibitors that are present)
  2. They are easier to blend
  3. Unleashes their ‘Manna’ (Spiritual Life Force)
  4. Increases the bioavailability of important nutrients (especially the B vitamins)
  5. Activates helpful enzymes that increase nutrient absorption

As well as soaked seeds, I am also using some other noteworthy ingredients such as:

  • Raw coriander leaves (cilantro) and ground coriander – known for its deep cleansing properties (especially for helping to remove unwanted heavy metals from the body).
  • Lemon and lemon zest – an excellent blood tonic, along with its potent nourishing, antiseptic, antioxidant and deep cleansing benefits.
  • Raw garlic – which has impeccable heart healthy, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant properties.

So, let’s embrace these gift from Mother Nature. Let’s raise our vibration. Let’s make Raw Sprouted Sunflower Seed Pate. Please do check out this super quick visual video guide first (it’s less than 90 seconds long)…

      This sounds wonderful :o) Trinity – if someone (like me!) really doesn’t like coriander leaves, what alternative herb would you suggest please?

      Is it really possible to make this without adding water?

        Absolutely, I do all the time.
        It works best with a good hand blender so you can use a pushing down motion. With a jug blender or food processor then it works, but sometimes a little scraping down of the sides is necessary until it fully blends.
        If you check out my video above (which is just over one minute long, so nice and quick) you can see how easy it is to make.
