A tasty accompaniment to steamed fish, grilled or BBQd meats, which is also low in those fats which are bad for you. The sunflower seeds add texture and crunch as well as a good dose of energy-giving vitamin B1, a vitamin essential to all Zaar addicts spending long hours on the computer.

- Stir the sunflower seeds, chopped parsley and lemon juice into the pan or wok, season to taste, and toss the mixture until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined and heated through.

I followed the recipe exactly, except I only used one red onion. Even so, the onion totally overpowered the potatoes....I had more red onions than potatoes just using one! (I suggest a measurement on the onions, instead of a number of onions) Otherwise, I made as posted. Unfortunately I couldn't even taste the sunflower seeds because of the overwhelming taste of the red onions. I hate to leave an unfavorable review, but no one at my dinner ate these potatoes. So sorry. Made for TYM Tag.
The family was a bit surprised at the sunflower seeds in their home fries and really enjoyed this change of pace side. Made for Adopt-A-Tag from PRMR.
We love sunflower seeds, so I was excited to try this, and I was not disappointed. Yummy! Made for PRMR.
