Sunshine in Prague

Erin, who visited us in Prague over the holidays (from her much-balmier San Mateo home), is one of us & loves to try out- & create- all sorts of Paleo & Primal recipes.  Happily, it didn’t take much to convince her to share some of her culinary adventures with us.

You’ll notice that this first recipe contains something called “Sunbutter”- not terribly easy to find in Prague.  With that in mind, I set out to find someone who has created a homemade version (because why shouldn’t we be able to make the things we need??).

From Erin:

Sunshine Sauce


I tried out the Sunshine Sauce from The Clothes Make the Girl – it’s not quite the thai peanut sauce I was hoping it would be but it was a tasty dipping sauce & I’ll definitely make it again.

2 tablespoons Sunbutter
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon chili-garlic paste
1 teaspoon organic, wheat-free, reduced sodium tamari sauce (I only used 1/2 tsp)
2 tablespoons coconut milk
2 tablespoons water (I used only 1 T, might even leave it out next time for a thicker sauce)
pinch dried ginger

Directions:
1. Blend it all up in a food processor or a blender
2. Enjoy!  I went through a whole crown of broccoli just dipping away…

Sounds delicious.  Now to the sunbutter:

Here is a recipe from Frugal Megan

Homemade Sunbutter

sunbutter

1 cup sunflower seeds (raw- uncooked, unsalted)

3-4 TBS oil- I used extra light olive oil, but you can use walnut, almond or canola oil.

dash of sea salt

Optional: Sweetener. I used local honey.

Directions: Process sunflower seeds for 4-5 minutes, or until it looks like sand. I found that after 4 minutes mine started piling on the sides of the food processor pretty bad, so processing further seemed pointless. I scraped and tried a minute more, but it seemed good to me.

*NOTE* If you’ve made peanut butter before, sunbutter does NOT act like peanuts do when they are ground. Peanuts have more natural oil and will turn fairly creamy during processing- you have to provide the oil for sunflowers, they just will not do this on their own.

Once your sunflower seeds look like sand, you can add the oil, one TBS at a time, scraping the sides between oil additions. After the oil is in, you can add your sweetener and salt to taste. Here is a picture of my seeds after 2-3 TBS oil:

almost done…

I actually thought I was done at this point, but decided to add more oil, just to see what would happen…and Voila! Just a couple more TBS of oil, and I had CREAMINESS!

Please let us know if you attempt any homemade sunbutter & how it turned out!  (&, naturally, how the Sunshine Sauce that you use it in, turns out.)
