Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

My favourite part about carving pumpkins is getting to pig out on delicious roasted pumpkin seeds once all the hard work is done. Are you surprised? I didn't think so. I had a feeling you knew me well enough by now to know that food is one of my favourite parts of any event.

Roasted Pumpkin SeedsIf you've been throwing away all of the seeds you dig out of your pumpkin each Halloween please (please please) stop doing that. Or at least give them to me. Better yet, clean them off, toss them in some oil and salt and roast them in the oven. You'll be happy you did ๐Ÿ™‚

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Roasted pumpkin seeds are best eaten warm out of the oven but they can easily be saved for another day. Just store them in a sealed container and they will last for at least several days.

Description

These Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are a super delicious and healthy snack. Try roasting seeds from butternut squash or spaghetti squash too. You will LOVE it!


Ingredients

  • Pumpkin seeds, cleaned of any excess stringy pumpkin bits
  • A splash of soy sauce
  • A splash of oil
  • A few grinds of sea salt (you can always add more once they are cooked)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Spread the pumpkin seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally but more near the end. (see notes)
  4. Remove from oven once dry, crispy and slightly browned. Let cool for a few minutes before digging in.

Notes

You can roast the seeds from other winter squash using this same method. Smaller seeds (like butternut squash or spaghetti squash seeds) will need to be roasted for less time.
