Pepitas

pepitasPopular in Mexican cooking, we’re now seeing pepitas popping up in recipes throughout the US.  They are really just pumpkin seeds without the shell, which have been roasted and salted, making them great for snacking, salads or mixed in with sauteed vegetables.  Plus, they’re high in protein, phosphorous and iron.
