Roasted pepitas or pumpkin seeds are yummy. You can roast in a skillet on the stove-top. Smoked paprika gives these a smoky quality. Pepitas can be found in the grocery store or a ethnic Latin store. These are a good source of protein and iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and copper.

1 cup raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/8 tsp smoked paprika
Cooking spray
  1. Heat non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Spray with cooking spray and add in pepitas, turn heat to medium low.
  3. Roast and give the pan a good shake every 5-6 seconds. The pepitas will begin to crackle. Continue roasting for about 5-6 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with the seasonings and adjust to taste.
