When you're carving your Halloween pumpkins, don't throw away the seeds!
Roasted pumpkin seeds have a nutty flavor and are packed with protein and fiber. Pumpkin seeds are delicious toasted and salted, but they're even better flavored with sweet and savory spices.
How to Roast Pumpkin Seeds
- Rinse pumpkin seeds under cold water and pick out the pulp and strings. (This is easiest just after you've removed the seeds from the pumpkin, before the pulp has dried.)
- Place the pumpkin seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet, stirring to coat. If you prefer, omit the oil and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
- Sprinkle with salt and bake at 325 degrees F until toasted, about 25 minutes, checking and stirring after 10 minutes.
- Let cool and store in an air-tight container.
Ok-I admit I have never, in my long life, roasted pumpkin seeds-although I carve pumpkins for Halloween every year!
Thanks to our blog friend Pea I'm gonna try them this time!
