Sunflower shoots are delicious – they taste green, like other nice mild salad leaves, but overlay it with all the butteriness of the sunflower seed.

I got this untreated seed from the local Pulse USA office last year, but birdseed packs of oilseed sunflower will work too. You’ll get better results if you remove the seeds with the little holes signifying a bug has gotten there before you.
