Extremely high in protein (averages 29% more than most seeds). High in EFAs and rich in Vitamin A, Iron, Calcium and B Vitamins. A favorite in trail mixes, in stir frys, casseroles or stews. May be cooked with grains and vegetables or used raw as a topping, whole or powdered dry in a blender if desired.|
For a nutritious dressing blend well with water and season to taste (1 part seeds: 1 part water). Mix with other seeds if desired. If possible, before using let set in a refrigerator at least two hours to help develop enzymes and destroy the natural enzyme inhibitors.
Pumpkin seeds are commonly used as an effective vermicide (to help rid the body of "unwelcome guests.")
