This week’s Secret Ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is Sunflower Seeds!
I found this great photo of a sunflower with this cool recipe for Sunflower Soup on the Care2 website. It’s a variation on the West African Peanut Soup. What a great idea. I can’t wait to give it a try.
If you are stumped on what to do with sunflower seeds you should visit the National Sunflower Association. They have tons of ideas. If you eat gluten and dairy free you’ll need to make the necessary adjustments.
Have you ever had sunflower seeds on a pizza? They taste really good. A nice little salty crunch.
This pizza was really good. It had tomato sauce, spinach, shitake mushrooms, caramelized onions, Daiya cheeses and sunflower seeds with a sprinkle of granulated garlic. I of course sprinkled Red Pepper Flakes on my slices.
Now it’s your turn to share. Add in your recipes with Sunflower Seeds. Don’t forget to link back to this post. For all past Secret Ingredients visit the Friday Foodie Fix page.
Next week’s Secret Ingredient will be Your School Breakfast or Lunch Recipes and/or Tips.
OK, so that’s not just an ingredient but I’ll be at the IFBC (International Food Blogging Conference) with a bunch of really cool bloggers and I know we’ll all be learning and eating. I plan on sharing the events through my facebook page and twitter. So if you are not following me, get to it now!
