Toast the seeds lightly. Once they have cooled, grind one cup of the seeds in a coffee grinder or blender.
Combine the rest of the non-ground hulled seeds, the ground seeds, oil, and pressed garlic in a small bowl, and blend them thoroughly with a fork.
Season with soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Add more oil for a softer consistency.
Store the butter in a glass jar in the refrigerator.
You’ll find it tastes great on bagels or bread.
Note: Another way to produce nut butter is to grind toasted or un-toasted hulled seeds in a Champion juicer.
