Recipe for Kanda- Central African Pumpkin Seed Meatballs simmered in a spiced tomato sauce. Top with parsley and serve with steamed rice.
With pumpkin season fully upon us, here is an interesting use for pumpkin seeds. In the Central African Republic, Kanda are meatballs made by pounding toasted pumpkin seeds into a powder and combining with ground meat, onion, and garlic. They are then simmered in a tomato onion sauce. It is a great way to spread out the amount of meat needed to serve more people, plus each bite includes a bit of toasted pumpkin seed flavor.
