Pumpkin seeds (Pepitas) are a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc and protein. To shell pumpkin seeds, rinse thoroughly, lay flat and roll a rolling pin over the seeds. Boil the cracked seeds for 5-10 minutes until the hull gradually falls off. Dry with a paper towel and toss in olive oil and kosher salt at 325 degrees for 13 minutes. Pumpkin seeds are a great garnish to add to any salad or dish!
