The Good News Sunflower seeds, the base for this smooth, nutty dip, are an excellent source of vitamin E. Ani Phyo says, "This is more than just a dip—I also like to eat it wrapped in a piece of lettuce, or scooped on top of a salad with a drizzle of olive oil."

  2. 3/4 cup dill sprigs
  3. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. 2 garlic cloves
  5. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
  6. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. Crudités, such as raw carrots, endives, radishes and peppers, for serving
  1. In a food processor, combine the sunflower seeds with the dill, lemon juice, garlic and water and process until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the crudités.
