Daikon (White radish) spread



Spreads are very easy to make and cost much less than buying them in the shop. I love to dip carrots into spreads, but they can be as well a nice topping on a piece of bread.
The spread takes only a few minutes to prepare and can be enjoyed fresh or kept in the fridge for a couple of days. 
Hint: take some spread to work with some carrot and use it as a healthy snack when you get hungry between your meals ;)...I am doing that right now :D




What will you need: 

- 1 medium daikon (white radish), approximately  20 cm long
- 200 g of sunflower seeds
- A few sun-dried tomatoes
- Juice of half lime
- Juice of 1/4 lemon
- a bit of salt (according to taste)
- 3 Tbsp of Walnut oil

Place first the sunflower seeds to the food processor. Blend until sunflower seeds are broken into small pieces. Add the white radish and blend. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until getting a smooth paste. It takes up to about 10minutes to get a smooth dip depending on the food processor you are using.
