Roasting Pumpkin Seeds...Kitchen Tip

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

A fun snack to enjoy with your family is Roasted Pumpkin Seeds; especially if your house is filling up with all the traditional sweet snacks associated with Halloween. Why not make something delicious and fun for your family to snack on while handing out treats to the neighborhood kids this year.  

Pumpkin seeds are high in fiber, protein and vitamins.  They're easy to roast and make a delicious snack.  You can eat them plain or season with salt or your favorite seasonings.  

  • 1 to 2 cups whole pumpkin seeds
  • Vegetable Oil; about 2 TBS. or Melted Butter
  • Salt, or other seasonings;  chili powder, curry powder or seasoned popcorn salt.   
Cut open the pumpkin and scoop the seeds out.  
Make sure you rinse and dry the seeds well.  
The key to having crispy roasted pumpkin seeds is to make sure the seeds are dry to begin with.
Spread the seeds out on a baking tray, coat with the oil or butter and sprinkle with the salt or other seasonings.
Roast at 400 degrees stirring once or twice until crispy.

  1. We are so late in the game at carving pumpkins this year! We now get 5 pumpkins b/c there's 5 of us (one is a baby pumpkin so no carving). This tips are great for when we carve tomorrow night! Pumpkin seeds are my FAVORITE. They are so addicting. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love very much roasted pumpkin seed. At home we made them just with salt. Eating them remind me my childhood in the house of my grandparents :)
