cheesy sunflower seed sauce

2 servings — 20 minutes

I'm allergic to tree nuts, but this doesn't mean that my choices of 'vegan cheeses' are limited. Seeds can be used interchangeably and produce a similar result, just as creamy and just as nutritious.

To soften the seeds, it's possible to quick-boil them. This makes it easier to grind down into a sauce. If you've got the time, soaking them for 1-2h is a better option (ref).
