Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Antonia MagorComment

Pumpkin seeds are packed full of essential minerals and fatty acids making them a very nutritious and energizing snack – this recipe is so quick to make and great to make a big batch and nibble on the go. Containing high levels of zinc, pumpkin seeds help support the immune system whilst their Omega 3 reduces inflammation as do the cleansing ginger and lemon zest.

Next time you make anything with pumpkins scoop out the seeds, clean, boil in salted water for roughly 10 minutes and drain before patting dry and toasting to really make the most of all the pumpkin.
