About this recipe: This makes a great vegan sandwich filling. You can replace the sunflower seeds with sesame seeds if you prefer. Try it on a toasted bagel with ripe tomato slices, or on granary bread with lettuce and onion.
You can find brown miso paste in Japanese and Asian shops. Simply omit from the recipe if you aren't able to find any. A dash of soy sauce might be a nice substitution.
