Roasted Spanish Pepitas

Pepitas = Shelled Pumpkin Seed

Pepitas are a great Autumn snack filled with protein and antioxidants. They are also very tasty tossed into your salad! Pepitas can be sourced 3 ways:

  1. Buy them in bulk raw;
  2. Harvest them straight out of a Hulless Pumpkin like a Kakai Pumpkin (pictured above);
  3. Harvest them out of a normal Orange Pumpkin but you will need to shell them out of the large white seeds which is a bit time consuming.

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees;

2. Spread 4 Cups of Dried Pepitas on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment;

3. In a bowl combine one teaspoon of each of the following: cumin, coriander, chili powder, paprika and garlic salt and mix;

4. Add 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil to spices and mix;

5. Drizzle spiced oil mixture over Pepitas on baking sheet;

6. Roast in oven for 40 minutes.

7. Let cool before storing in an airtight container.
