Yesterday afternoon we had the most beautiful weather here in Germany. It was sunny, relatively warm for March and the birds were singing. You could immediately see the difference in the pace of life- everybody seemed happier, lighter and in a better place. I love to see mother nature in action and was instantly craving summer foods and I wished spring was already there with its green abundance. Since I have not chance but to wait, I created something raw that reminds me of spring, herb gardens and the first flowers - sesame tomato canapés. 

These canapés have a base of curried seeds and I love how sesame, sunflower seeds, lemon, curry and chives mingle. It's just sooo fresh and rich! On top they a sauce of sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, garlic and sea salt and a fresh red onion, tomato, chive mix. These are clean, easy to make, a healthy appetizer, lunch or dinner and will be loved by everybody. Plus they are nut free, gluten free, dairy free and vegan. If you love tomatoes- this is for you!

Makes 4

1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds + 1 T
juice of 1 small lemon
2 T chopped chives
1 t curry powder
1 t tumeric
1 pinch of sea salt

Sun-dried tomato sauce
1/4 cup chopped unsalted, sun-dried tomatoes, soaked for 1 h
8 cherry tomatoes
pinch of sea salt
1/2 small clove of garlic

Tomato/onion mix
 8 cherry tomatoes
1/2 medium red onion
2 T chopped chives

For the canapés, pulse sunflower seeds and sesame seeds into fluor. Mix with lemon juice, chives and spices and form into 4 small canapés. Toss in 2 T sesame seeds. Let firm up in the fridge for 1/2 h.
For the sun-dried tomato sauce, blend sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and sea salt. Spread on top of canapés-
For the tomato/onion mix, chop cherry tomatoes, red onion and chives and mix. Place on top of tomato sauce.
