  • 4 oz. 110 g (175 ml) sunflower seeds

    Absolutely love this recipe. I use the almonds for a snack, but find they're too big to go over a salad, so when making recipe for a salad I use a mixture of softer nuts like pinenuts and chopped pecans. Makes a softer mix and lovely through a salad.

    Recipe calls for chili paste but the photo looks as though there are chopped chilis - what gives the best result?

    You can use either! Whichever you can get easiest locally.

    Great recipe. I couldn't find chili paste in my grocery store so I used red curry paste. It was delicious but as spicy a I would like. I will get the chili paste and try that next. Just wondering how many I can eat and still be in ketosis.

    That's going to vary from person to person but too many nuts at once can be problematic so use caution!
