    Made today for Christmas... had to restrain myself from eating it all! Used half pine nuts and half sunflower seeds myself, and excluded the syrup. Super tasty. Excited to see what the family thinks.

    Love it! It's so flavorful! I didn't add parsley and used pine nuts instead of sunflower seeds and it was great!
