Creamy Sunflower Curry Sauce

Summary

Using sunflower seeds to make a creamy base is a great way to get vitamin E, selenium, plant-based protein, and fiber in a simple spread. Adding curry powder (a combination of spices that may include cumin, turmeric, coriander, ginger, and garlic) not only makes for a flavorful blend, but they each pack their own powerful nutritional punch. Soak the seeds ahead of time to whip this up in a flash!
