    I noticed that there were onion in the directions but there wasn't any onion in the ingredients list. I used 1/2 small onion. I also used the wine but I think that 1/2 cup was a bit too much. IF I use the wine again, I would only use 2 tsp. I loved the sunflower seeds in it. - 1/13/10

    Thanks so much for writing! Glad you liked the texture; sorry about missing some ingredients I tend to add minced garlic and onion to recipes as a habit and forget it's a key component :)

    Have a great day!
