Blah Blah Blah……You know I heart my veggies.

And pepitas (aka shelled pumpkin seeds) are my latest obsession. And a pumpkin seed recipe is always a good recipe, according to moi.

The crunch is awesome and their mild creamy flavor is a perfect touch. They’re like mini croutons without the wheat. Pretty neat!

The key to this detox bowl is to keep it simple.

Roast that cauliflower.

Chop those red onions.

Steam up that corn.

Toss that peppery arugula.

And you are D.O.N.E.

Done.

Drizzle on your dressing and throw your toasted pepitas on top and you’re ready for a fun night of flavor.

This is quite possibly the greatest thing to eat before Thanksgiving.

In my book, nothing tops a big bowl o’ veggies.

Just sayin’.

Enjoy!

  1. This looks fantastic. I’m also recently obsessed with pumpkin seeds! I need texture and crunch in my meals and this is a great way to do it.

  2. Came here from the Enjoy Life contest over at FB. I’m not a fan of red onions, especially raw red onions, but I love a good bowl of veggies. I’d make this sans the onions and gobble it right up!
