Preheat the oven to 180*c.  Put the herbs, spices and oil into a food processor and make into a paste, then mix them with the pumpkin seeds and spread on to a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.  Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes, turning ever so often with a spoon.  Leave to cool and store in a Kilner jar or airtight container and they will last for up to 2 weeks.


80g flour

40g egg white

40g melted butter

3g seasoning mix

25g spiced pumpkin seeds

Make a batter from the flour and egg white. Whisk in melted butter and seasoning mix.  Roll out thinly onto silpat matt and sprinkle with the spiced pumpkin seeds.  Bake at 190*c until golden.  Leave to cool on a cooling wire. When cold, snap into rustic pieces.

This mix can also be made into a traditional tuille, just by spreading onto tray/mould.

Happy cooking!
