So, what is pepita?

Pepitas are tiny, green seeds that are packed with nutrients and a satisfying crunch. These edible kernels are often found inside pumpkin seeds, but can also be purchased separately in many grocery stores. Pepitas are a terrific source of protein, healthy fats, and fiber, making them an ideal ingredient to add to savory dishes like soups, salads, and grain bowls. Additionally, pepitas can be roasted and seasoned to create a flavorful snack or garnish that adds texture and depth to any dish. Whether you're looking for a nutritious boost or a delicious topping, pepitas are a versatile and tasty ingredient that should not be overlooked.
