Pumpkin seeds are also known as pepitas, the Spanish culinary term "little seed of squash". Pumpkin seeds have been a favored ingredient in Mexican cuisine for centuries and they remain a popular food today in many places around the world. The delicately nutty flavor of pumpkin seeds make them a wonderful addition to cereals, granolas, salads, entrée, or just by themselves. These small seeds pack a powerhouse of nutrition. They're a very rich source of protein and iron, as well as potassium, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin E and magnesium. Pumpkin seeds are also an excellent source of B vitamins such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6 and folate. They're also low in calories which make them a delightful "guilt-free" snack.
