    About this recipe: These tasty flatbreads are topped with nutritious sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Sunflower seeds are packed with vitamin E and supply folate, a possible cancer-fighter, while pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, an immune-system booster.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 2¼ cups plain flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • Salt
    • 3 teaspoons unsalted butter
    • 3 teaspoons solid vegetable shortening
    • 1 egg white lightly beaten with 2 teaspoons water
    • 1/4 cup shelled pumpkin seeds
    • 1/4 cup shelled, dry-roasted sunflower seeds
    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

    1. Combine the flour, cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Cut in the butter and shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add 2/3 cup water to make a soft, smooth dough. Knead for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Transfer to a bowl that has been sprayed with cooking spray, cover and rest for 1 hour.
    2. Preheat the oven to 210°C. Spray two large baking trays with cooking spray (or use nonstick trays); put aside. Cut the dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece out to a 23 cm round (about 1.5 mm thick). Transfer to the prepared baking trays.
    3. Brush the dough with the egg-white mixture. Sprinkle the pumpkin and sunflower seeds over the dough. Sprinkle each dough round with 2 teaspoons of the Parmesan. Bake for 12 minutes or until the bread is lightly puffed, golden brown and crisp.
