Go Raw Spicy Seed Mix

I was shopping at our local co-op the other day with the kiddos. They always love to check out the bargain bin to see what deals they can find. This time they pulled out Go Raw Spicy Seed Mix. Score! We haven't tried this before, but we love seeds ans we love spicy so were sure this was right up our alley. Don't worry if you aren't into spicy. I would call them more tangy, not at all overpowering.
 You could definitely just eat this mix right out of the package, but I've been trying to savor them by using it as a topping to normal dinners. This night's dinner was whole wheat gobetti with broccoli, peas, carrots, cauliflower, corn, and green beans, some Field Roast Smoked Apple Sage Sausage, and tahini sauce.
I steam three pounds of veggies for one pound of pasta. This ratio works really well for us. We could eat a different variation of this meal everyday just with a new sauce and maybe quinoa or brown rice instead of pasta. Tahini sauce is one of our favorites and we put it on everything. Basically, just blend together tahini, lemon juice, garlic, nutritional yeast, tamari, and water. The spicy seed mix topped it all off so well. I make a pumpkin seed mixture myself, but it was nice to try Go Raw's version. We love a bit of crunch and nutrition boost to our meals.
