Easy and Budget-Friendly - SUNFLOWER SEED DRESSING (Raw+Vegan)

Many of the very delicious raw vegan salad dressings are made out of nuts and like it is often the case with food, all those mind-blowing recipes usually involve the more expensive ingredients. As a traveler my budget is something I watch very closely and although I like to indulge in the really good stuff when it comes to food, this is not something I need every day. 

Sooo, here is a very simple and budget-friendly dressing recipe, that you can easily adapt to your taste buds with any herbs and spices that make your dinner salad to a winning combo.

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds 
  • 1 red onion 1 garlic clove 
  • 1/2 thumb ginger 
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder 
  • Juice of 1 lemon 
  • 1-2 cups water 
  • 1 bunch of spring onion 

Sunflower seeds are available pretty much anywhere around the world and in my experience they are a very affordable ingredient. If you include nuts and seeds into your salad, let it be in a salad dressing like this or as a topping, chances are higher that you don’t grab for some fatty snacks as a dessert since it makes your meal much more satisfying and fulfilling.  

I just threw everything into my blender and waited for the mixture to turn bright yellow and creamy. I then coupled this bowl of sunshine with a colorful salad mixture and ready was my raw vegan dinner.  

What meal would you coat with this tasty sunflower seed dressing?
