Sunflower seeds not only enhance the flavour of your meals but also contribute to various health benefits, including weight management, immunity boost, and improved digestion. They are a versatile addition to a wide range of dishes, from smoothies and oatmeal to soups and salads, making them a favourite among health-conscious food enthusiasts. However, have you ever come across someone plucking a sunflower, grilling it, and savouring it? Probably not. In a recent Instagram video that is making waves, this unique culinary experiment is showcased. What is even more intriguing is the claim in the video that this distinctive dish tastes like artichoke and is PCOS-friendly.
The video kicks off with a man snipping sunflowers from his garden. Next, he meticulously removes all the pollen from the flowers and gently detaches the petals. Following this, he crafts a paste consisting of chopped garlic, marjoram, and olive oil. The paste is skillfully brushed onto the flowers, which are then placed upside down on the grill. After a wait of 10-15 minutes, the unique dish is carefully plated and savoured.
