Perfect Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!!!

24 Oct Perfect Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!!!

It is almost Halloween and this is the best time to start carving your pumpkins and best of all roasting  the seeds! I LOVE roasted pumpkin seeds, my mom did this with me as a kid with my brother and sister and I continue the tradition with my daughter Laila. Roasting pumpkin seeds are so easy, delicious and highly addictive. This is the way my mom taught me:

I would always watch my mom scoop out the inside with us, place them in a colander and separate the seeds out and then rinse them.


Next, it is very important to really dry them so I dry them with paper towels and then transfer them to a clean dish towel and let them site at least 10-15 minutes.

Then I make the traditional kind my mom did which is to coat them extra virgin olive oil and salt. However, I also make a sweet version that my taught loves with regular oil ( any you like that has no strong flavor) and some pumpkin pie spice – once they are cooked and out of the oven I toss them is some cinnamon sugar. ­čÖé

Then you just bake them at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes tossing them around a few times while cooking.  Depending on your oven and how crispy you like them the time will vary so be sure to check on them!

I like to eat these right away and store the rest in mason jars for snacking on throughout the week! ­čÖé
