Honestly, I was so surprised by the flavor if this cream dip the first time I had it. It tastes so sweet - naturally! Even though, it is based on champignons. My favorite way to serve it is either in a mixed salad bowl (rainbow bowl), on a veggie taco like I did here or on top of a wholegrain slice of bread, alongside with more greens and a mildly sour fruit which balances the natural sweet flavor of the cream dip.
Experts in the raw, vegan, wholegrain field say: Yes, you should always soak your nuts, seeds and grains as they all contain phytic acids and enzyme inhibitors. Soaking helps to break down the natural plant compounds and results in an increased mineral availability and improved digestibility. I recommend you to soak the sunflower seeds 6-8h in water before prepping the dip.
However, I am a firm believer in taking firsts steps into the right direction. Therefore, I truly believe that it's better to eat regular (unsoaked) "wholegrains" than eating none - if consumed in moderate amounts. If you're vegan/ vegetarian and your diet naturally contains loads of whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts, you should definitely soak them in my opinion.
