Bone Broth Couscous
1Preheat oven to 325.
2Spread hazelnuts on a baking sheet and set a timer for 20 minutes. Put sheet tray with hazelnuts in the oven and begin the timer.
3After 10 minutes, add the pumpkin seeds. When timer goes off, remove the sheet from the oven and allow to cool.
4Heat a thick bottomed frying pan over medium heat for 5 minutes. Grab two small dishes to keep by the stove for putting seeds in after toasting.
5One the pan is heated, spread the fennel seeds on the frying pan and toast for 30 seconds.
6Add the cumin seeds and continue to toast them for an additional 30 seconds. Remove the seeds from the pan to small dish 1.
7Add the coriander seeds to the empty pan and toast them for about a minute, until they begin to pop. Remove to small dish 1.
8Turn the heat down to medium low. Add the sesame seeds to the frying pan and toast them until they are brown. Remove them to small dish 2.
9Rub the (now cool) hazelnuts between your hands to remove the skins. Coarsely chop them.
10Put the pumpkin, fennel, cumin and corianders seeds and the black peppercorns into a mortar or the bowl of a spice grinder. Process the ingredients until they are finely ground. Add the sesame seeds, salt, and paprika and lightly process for about 5 seconds. Mix the hazelnuts and the spice mix together and set aside.
