Pepita seeds, also known as pumpkin seeds, provide a rich source of fiber and boast nearly 9 grams of protein per ounce! This superseed is loaded with minerals, heart healthy magnesium, immune-loving zinc as well as phosphorus, manganese, copper, and iron. But the real beauty of this dressing is its versatility. Use it as a dip for a veggie snack. Toss it with spiralized zucchini and chopped sun-dried tomatoes for dinner. Any way you choose to enjoy it will be absolutely delicious!
Yield: roughly 3/4 cup
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds
- ½ cup water
- ½ bell pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried herb of choice
- (I used a mix of cumin, sage, parsley)
- 2 teaspoon tamari
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, to taste
1) Blend ingredients until smooth, adjusting flavor with lemon juice and tamari.
