  3. To make sunflower patty, wet the sunflower mince with water and wait a moment. Mix in all ingredients listed under sunflower mince patty and Italian seasoning carefully. Add water if necessary as the patty shouldn't get too dry.

  6. Spread tomato aioli which is made by mixing Lizza pesto tomato cashew, vegan mayonnaise and garlic powder on top and garnish with fresh basil leaves followed by a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper.
