I call this recipe “non-tuna mousse” since it reminds me a little bit about tuna mousse. The mousse is great to serve with a summer salad, as a filling in a wrap or why not as a dish on the buffet table? All you need is a food processor, and you’re ready to go!Print
- Cuisine : 4 servings
0.5 liters of sunflower seeds (soaked for one hour)
2 lemons – squeeze out the juice
0.75 dl water
0.75 dl tamari or other soy sauce
1 tbsp agave syrup
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 stalks of celery
1 medium-sized red onion
Soak the sunflower seeds in a bowl for one hour or longer (works perfect to soak them over the night). Take away the water and rinse the sunflower seeds. Put the seeds in a food processor and add lemon juice, tamari, water, agave syrup and cayenne pepper.
Mix until it becomes a thick and creamy mousse. Taste the mousse and add some more tamari, lemon and / or cayenne pepper if needed. If you want the mousse more creamy you can add a tablespoon of olive oil. Place the mixed mousse in a bowl.
Dice celery and red onion in small fine cubes and stir it down in the mousse. Serve with lemon and fresh dill on the top.
