Lower East Side Spread

this sounds really good... it's from Living Cuisine
1 1/2 C sunflower seeds, soaked
1 1/2 C pumpkin seeds, soaked
2 cloves garlic
2/3 C chopped red onion
1 1/2 Tbsp fennel seeds
2 Tbsp oregano
1 1/2 C chopped broccoli
2 Tbsp tahini *optional*
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp salt (or more to taste)

Soak seeds together in fresh water for 2-4 hours, drain and rinse. In FP chop garlic, onion, fennel, and oregano. Add broccoli, soaked seeds and tahini, blend into a smooth paste, or leave it a little chunky. Season with salt and pepper.

rawererin,
the spread looks really good, I have all the ingredients except for the broccoli. So I will have to run to the store to get me some broccoli and make your spread. I love making spreads.

Oh yum. Thanks for bumping this up, RFLF. It had somehow slipped by without me noticing it. I'll have to put broccoli on the list too.

I made the spread and it is awesome. As usual I like to modify every recipe so that's what I did with this one,too. I added juice of 1 lemon and some water because I wanted it to be creamier but over all I really liked it. It went really good wrapped in lettuce leafs.
rawererin, thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us

it's called Lower East Side spread because "fennel seeds, fresh black pepper, and oregano are reminiscent of sausage spices from the Lower East Side of New York... superb served with fresh bell peppers or dehydrated into sausages"

I'm glad this recipe is getting some play, it went unnoticed for a while, it just sounded so good that I had to post it, now I'm going to have to make it myself!

I made this too with some added lemon juice as well. I threw a pizza together yesterday so I thought to myself: " Hey, why not?" (See more details here). The result was sooooooo darn good! As it turns out, the fennel and oregano was reminiscent of sausage spices. Perfect!

I found this spread through Google last week and I tried it out today. It's awesome and I'd like to think OP for posting this. However, I suggest a bit less than 2 tsp pepper or at least being a bit cautious.
