Prep time: 15 min • Cook time: 10 min • Yield: a little over ¾ cup

¼ cup raw sesame seeds
¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 teaspoon flaked salt
½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
½ to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon orange zest

Preheat oven to 350º F.

Pour sesame seeds and sunflower seeds on a small baking sheet and toast in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes stirring twice. Pour into a small bowl.

Preheat a sauté pan over medium heat and add poppy seeds. Toast for about 5 minutes and add to bowl.

Using the same pan, toast caraway seeds for about 1 to 2 minutes and add to bowl.

Add salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and orange zest and mix all together. Store in a tightly sealed container or jar and store away from heat as you would with other spice blends.

Notes: Great on steamed or sautéed vegetables; it really gives them some zing! Also great on sweet potatoes or sprinkled over eggs.
