celery, finely chopped
This dip was awesome. It tasted like a nutty version of hummus. I saved time by buying unsalted, pre-roasted sunflower seeds from the bulk food store. The first time I made it as is, and I thought the raw onion was too strong. Next time, I left out the onion, and substituted the water for olive oil for more flavour. It was awesome!
My adult daughter's a vegan, so I'm trying to get with the program, but this recipe epitomizes why I have often had issues with vegetarian/vegan cuisine. I disagree with the reviewer who said it had too much bite. It's very bland and paste-like. I'm really going to think about how I might tweak it if I were to make it again. Certainly more celery and onion, as well as other fresh veggies to give it the texture and flavor good vegan/vegetarian food can have!
This was great. I found it needed a touch more lemon juice and a small clove of garlic extra. I have also added a little black pepper from time to time. BUt it is great, i use it where I work to make snacks for the employees..thanks Sue, great job!!!
I found my mixture to be a bit dry so I added Maple yogurt to the mixture. This spread is yummy and can be doubled as a dip.
I like this! I had almost forgotten to add the lemon juice, then saw it sitting on the counter as I was sticking the spread in the refrigerator, so quickly added it. That is what really makes the spread work! I loved the chopped celery and onions with the smoother other ingredients. Thanks!
With a good bit of tweaking this came closer to 5 stars, but the combination of raw onion and that much lemon created such a bite that I had to spend a lot of time adjusting the flavors. I ended up adding olive oil and plain yogurt to get it more the consistency of hummus, and it was great. Loved the nuttiness of the sunflower seeds, so it was a great change of pace!
I love sunflower seeds so I decided to make this. The outcome was ok, but a few things. I felt that the recipe was not clear on some things. For instance, do you use unsalted or salted sunflower seeds? If you do use salted, as I did, it will become too salty. I wish I had tasted the paste and added the soy sauce ONLY if necessary. On the celery stalk, do you use the celery including the leaves? I omitted the leaves out until the end to see if I would need to add it in. It did need the whole celery WITH the leaves, maybe even a bit more. I felt the paste needed more lemon juice than called for, maybe even a full cup. This may be due to the recipe being too salty though.
I love it! On toast this is so good. I didn't have any celery so I added some leek instead and extra garlic. I'll be making this again and again.
