What do you eat, Alexandra?

I wouldn't have thought that halva was something that could be made at home. until yesterday, when I carefully read the ingredients on a packet of halva: fried sunflower seeds, sugar, vanilla.
So I imagined the recipe, I applied it with fear on a small amount of sunflower seeds, and the result was far beyond expectations, I must share it with you!

A fresh, fragrant halva came out, which definitely beats everyone in the shops, especially now that the Feleacul halva no longer exists (in its original form) to compete with it.
Luci kept complaining that the best halva in Romania, Feleacul, had long since disappeared from stores. now he has no reason to be upset! :))

Update 2015: Feleacul halva reappeared in stores :) But my homemade halva is much better, hehe :)

Ingredients for about 100g:

  • 100g raw and peeled sunflower seeds
  • sweetener of your choice: 3 tablespoons maple or agave syrup, or raw powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of natural vanilla essence and a bourbon vanilla pod
  • if you want cocoa halva, you will also need 1 teaspoon of defatted cocoa powder (or more, according to taste)

Necessary equipment and utensils:

We need a food processor with an S blade and an oven or stove to brown the signs.


1. Sunflower seeds are browned without oil for 1 minute in a non-stick pan, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon so as not to burn.

To give you an idea of ​​how much they are left to brown, I left them for another 30 seconds after they started sizzling and smelling of fried seeds, but not of burnt seeds :).

For the raw halva version, skip this step.

2. The browned seeds are left to cool for 2-3 minutes, until they are not boiled, and they are finely ground in the S blade or in the coffee grinder.

Grind until it gets the texture of semolina, if you grind them too small they will start to leave oil and the halva will be too hard, so don't overdo it with the grinder, 2-3 minutes are enough for a fluffy and delicious halva.

3. Add the sweetener and vanilla and mix well until smooth and becomes a fine paste.
I used the food processor with S blade for about 5 minutes.

It is also worth trying the cocoa version.
You can add a tablespoon of rum instead of vanilla.

Preparation time:

- 15 minutes with the mixer at the food processor with blade S
