Raw Spicy Seed Mix
This raw spicy seed mix is an easy recipe – it just takes a little time. These kinds of snacks are handy to have on hand when you are busy, rushed or didn’t get a chance to eat properly, are over hungry or need a little snack. This is one of the raw vegan recipes that are easy to make unless you use the oven then it may not be raw. When buying nuts or seeds always make sure that they say ‘raw’ otherwise they will not be and most of the nutrition is not there any longer.
Pumpkin seeds are great for you especially when they are raw or sprouted. I like making mine a little more spicy than this recipe but not everyone does so this is a good place to start. If you like it spicy add more or double this recipe (not the seeds though) and if you don’t like it spicy omit the Cayenne and cut back on the jalapenos.
If you time it right, it’s easy to do – i.e. soak your nuts all day then dehydrate them through the night or vice versa. Don’t be afraid to play with the spices or spice it up even more!
Raw Spicy See Mix
– 11/2 cups raw Pumpkin seeds soaked (soak for 8-10 hrs for best results)
– 1 cup raw Sunflower seeds (soak for same amount of time)
– juice of 2 Limes
– ¾ tsp Himalaya Salt (adjust amount according to taste – if you like salty add a little more and vise versa)
– 1-2 Jalapenos (depending on how hot you like it)
– 1 cup fresh Cilantro
– 2 cloves Garlic minced
– pinch Cayenne pepper (optional)
Once the nuts are done soaking, drain well. Throw the rest of the ingredients in a processor or Vitamix and blend well. Mix drained, soaked nuts and ingredients together well, then spread on dehydrator sheet and let dehydrate overnight (approx 8 hours) or put in oven at the lowest temp if you don’t have a dehydrator – it may not stay raw but better than nothing.
