Spread sunshine all over your sandwich..or dunk your favorite veggies!
Method #1: Toss all ingredients into a food processor and blend until desired consistency.
Method #2: Combine all the prepared veggies into a medium mixing bowl. Using a hand held blender, blend for 2-3 minutes, then add lemon juice and sunflower seeds and blend until smooth. Then add the Neufchatel. Blend until desired consistency.
Dunk veggies into this quick dip, or simply schmear onto your favorite wrap/bread and build a Sunny Sandwich!
Kids in the Kitchen:
Kids love to grate carrots. Let them grate to their hearts' content by using a special "knuckle protector." Simply fold a washcloth in half (diagonally), wrap around knuckles (on the "half line"), and fasten with a big broccoli rubber band!
Let the wee ones press the button on the food processor and watch the veggies whiz 'round and 'round.
Try adding 1 tablespoon of flax seed oil to the schmear for more "schmearability" - and a brain boost (good Essential Fatty Acids!)
