80 g pepitas
2 tbsp. caster sugar
1 ½ tbsp. sea salt flakes
1 tsp ground chilli
Pinch cayenne peppe
1. Combine the pepitas and sugar in a frying pan and stir occasionally over a low medium heat until the sugar begins to melt. Add the sea salt flakes and gently shake the pan for a couple of minutes until the pepitas are toasted. Remove from the heat and stir in the ground chilli and cayenne pepper.
2. Transfer the pepitas to a sheet of baking paper and separate them a little to avoid them clumping as they cool. Store in an air tight container.
NOTE: These make a wonderful addition to salads or eaten just as they are. If you are not fond of chilli, add a little tamari and maple syrup.
