I like the sweetness of them raw. I bake them into bread; I also throw them into coleslaw (cabbage, carrots, purple cabbage, parsely) with poppyseed dressing.

Hi, If I am short of time I just roast them under the grill or in a non stick pan on the hob, stiring all the time. It is very quick to do and ready in no time. You have to watch it though when using the grill, it is quick and careful not to burn.

when I want to toast sunflower seeds for a savory dish, I first make BACON. After I pour off the bacon grease to save, I toast the sunflower seeds in the skillet with the bacon residue grease, takes about five minutes, keep pushing the seeds around the skillet...on medium heat.....then they taste just like BACON.
