Pumpkin Seed Chile Verde

04 May

My version of a traditional Mexican recipe with a boost of nutrients.

100 grams of dried pumpkin seeds contain over 100% of your recommended dietary allowance of vitamin E, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus and sesame seeds are also rich in iron, calcium, thiamine, copper and zinc

Ingredients:

1 lb tomatillos, husked and rinsed
1 cup of broth
4 lbs of pork shoulder roast
1 to 2 jalapeños, stemmed and chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, plus more for garnish
6 green onions, trimmed and roughly chopped
6 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded and roughly chopped
1 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas), toasted
1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted
1/3 cup of almond flour.
Salt and pepper to taste.

Preparation:
Blend all ingredients together, except the meat. Place everything in a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours, shred pork and mix in with sauce.
Garnish with fresh cilantro or green onions
Serves about 10
