Sunflowers were once cultivated by the North Americans, who believed in using them well! They ate the seeds and extracted the oil, used the petals for dye and the leaves as an animal fodder. Sunflower seeds are rich in B-Complex vitamins, many minerals, protein and vitamin E. The high nutritional value is particularly due to the ability of the flower heads to face the sun and so absorb the maximum amount of sunshine.
Eat as a snack, sunflower seeds have a mild nutty flavour and and are packed full of energy and nutrional value. Sprinkle onto hot or cold breakfast cereal or muesli, use to garnish a green salads, great in a stir fry. Add a handful to a fruit smoothie for added nutrition. Combine sunflower seeds with pine nuts when making a pesto sauce. Try them toasted, it really brings out the flavour. They also make a great addition to home made bread, muffins or cookies.
