Tip by La Cocina Goya

Toast Pumpkin Seeds in a Flash

In a hurry? You can cut the toasting time of the pumpkin seeds in half and guarantee perfect crispy, crunchy results by cooking them in a microwave. To do, place seeds in microwave-safe bowl and toss with 1 tbsp. olive oil. Microwave on HIGH 4 minutes, stirring after every minute. Season the pepitas with adobo and relax!
