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.
