Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Roasting pumpkin seeds is a great way to get the most out of a fresh pumpkin that you are roasting or even a jack-o-lantern you are carving, perhaps, for Halloween. Plus, you can get creative and sprinkle anything from celery salt to chili powder to garam masala.

  • Seeds scooped out of a fresh pumpkin
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • other spices (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Separate the seeds from the stringy fibers of the pumpkin and place into a sieve. Wash under running water to remove any bits of pumpkin flesh then spread on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt (and/or any other spices).

Roast for about 10-15 minutes or until starting to brown.

Enjoy!
