Peeled pumpkin seeds, 300 g
Olive oil, 150 ml


1. Soak the pumpkin seeds in water for about two hours (you can refrigerate overnight). Check between two fingers that the seeds have softened. Strain and transfer to a food processor.
2. Add your chosen addition (see more information), pour in oil and turn on the food processor. If the spread is dry, pour oil, a little at each time, until a spread in the desired texture is obtained.
3. Transfer to a jar (about 500 g) and keep in the refrigerator.
4. Enjoy (:
Toppings to choose from (about 2 tablespoons): roasted hot pepper, sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, olives without pits, pickled lemon or “shifke” hot pepper without the seeds.

Total time: 2-3 hours

Equipment: food processor/rod blender.

The amount of oil is according to personal taste. I used unrefined sunflower oil. The nutritional value does not include the additions to choose from.
