I have half of a kilo of sunflower seeds left. I don't like it in soups, smoothies, pates nor bars.
When I google dishes with sunflowers I get as a result bunch of breads (shaped as sunflower).
Maybe salad, but ... this sunflower isn't roasted and taste of seeds that way isn't so good.
As you can see I really don't have much options left. I think I'm going to give it to birds.

The first half was spend on some risotto with mushrooms. But I can't stand risottos anymore.
I also don't bake breads (I don't have patience) nor cookies.

I feel so hopeless, like I'll never find a way out with this sunflower. It's in my kitchen for about half a year.
I just ignore the sunflower bag every time I notice it on the shelf.

Did you ever have such problem?

I use them in this recipe:

They go well in granolas and cereals. If you have access to a high speed blender or food processor, you can make sunflower butter out of it for a spread.

Or you could put them in a nice jar and give them to somone for a gift with some printed recipes to go with.

I have a big container of chia seeds I keep forgetting about.

I like to sprinkle them on top of things like shepherds pie and lasagne, I use a mix of seeds including sesame. You could also make a parmesan substitute http://www.pccnaturalmarkets.com/pcc/recipes/sunflower-seed-parmesan.

I forgot about the parmesan substitute. I love to use sunflower seeds for that!

There's a nice recipe for sunflower macaroni cheeze on the post punk kitchen - http://www.theppk.com/2012/02/sunflower-mac/I have actually only tried the recipe with pumpkin seeds, because those are the seeds *I* was trying to get rid of! But it was very nice, and I'm sure would be just as nice with sunflower seeds :D

Just dry fry them, only takes a couple of minutes.
