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.

This is a classic from the Middle East where tahini, a nutty-flavoured sesame seed paste, is used like cream to add substance and moisture to simple dishes. Try serving with a salad of black olives, tomatoes and red onions with sprigs of basil.
