There’s more to a pumpkin than just pie. Roasted seeds are a yummy bonus from the hard work of digging out the pumpkin guts.

Ingredients:

  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Olive oil
  • Salt


Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Pull all pumpkin seeds out of the pumpkin.
  3. Put into a strainer and clean under running water.
  4. Pour into a bowl.
  5. Add just enough oil to coat. Sprinkle with salt.
  6. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for about 7-10 minutes, depending on the amount of seeds. Stir half way through cooking. Watch closely- they go from deliciously roasted brown to a dark brown burn in a matter of minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Add additional salt to taste, if needed.
  9. Enjoy!
