1 cup raw sunflower seeds, soaked
1/2 tsp. nutritional yeast
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, quartered
1-1/2 cups water, add more if needed

- In a colander, sprinkle grated cucumber with teaspoon of salt. Cover with a plate and add heavy object (like a can of food) to help drain out water for 20 minutes. Squeeze out remaining juice with your hands.
- In blender or food processor, combine sunflower seeds, nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar, garlic and water. Process until smooth.
