    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    This was derived from having a mega bunch of sunflower seeds. I love spreads and pastes to add flavor. If you want more garlic, feel free to add more. I use on toast points, rub on chicken, crackers.It is a good rub for baked pork chops.

      Thanks to a nice reviewer, here are suggestions if you want the spread to be easier to spread. Add 1 tblsp. olive oil and 1 tblsp water more, then a little more before processing.
    3. 3
      Note: Suggested heating the olive oil,(a total of 3 tblsp. olive oil) setting it aside with the garlic cloves in it will reduce the garlic flavor and make it more mild.
    4. 4
      Put in a small covered airtight container in the refrigerator.
    5. 5
      Note: If you use unsalted sunflower seeds,.
    6. 6
      add 1/2 teaspoons salt or 1/2 teaspoons salt substitute.
    7. 7
      Note: The longer it is stored,the more intense flavor.

      I made this a few days ago and followed the suggestion for adding 6 Tbsp. of water and more oil. That helped the processing and spreadability of this a great deal. I also thought it needed something flavorwise, so I added some cajun seasoning. The cajun seasoning melded the flavors perfectly. This makes a great sandwich with lettuce and tomato. I'll be making it again.

      I've made this spread 3 times now! It is a delicious, easy and filling snack. I would however like to add a couple of suggestions to make this recipe easier for those interested...Add an additional 2 tablespoons of olive oil and about 6 tablespoons of water or else you won't be able to process it. Another way to make the garlic taste a little less pungent is to heat the olive oil in a pan until it is warm, take oil off the stove, and then let the cloves soak in the oil for a couple of hours. Your spread will still have a tasty garlicky flavor, but it will be a bit more mild.
