Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbs. plus 2 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 Tbs. plus 2 tsp. barbecue or jerk seasoning, divided
  • 2 lb. spinach leaves
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Stir together sunflower seeds, 2 tsp. oil, and 2 tsp. seasoning in small bowl. Spread on small baking sheet, and bake 5 to 7 minutes, or until light brown. Set aside.
