Roasted Pumpkin Seeds: A Simple Step-by-Step Guide

Fall is here, and it’s time to learn the easy way to roast pumpkin seeds. My mom’s tradition of pumpkin seed roasting continues, and I’ll show you the straightforward process to transform these seeds into a tasty snack. No more wasting those seeds – let’s get roasting!

Step 1: Seed Extraction

Start by cutting the top off the pumpkin and scoop out all the seeds.

Step 2: Seed Cleanup

Rinse the seeds and remove any remaining pumpkin residue.

Step 3: Drying Time

Place the seeds on a towel to dry and pat them dry.

Step 4: Seasoning Sensation

Once dry, mix the seeds in a bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a pinch of chili powder for a spicy kick.

Step 5: Bake to Perfection

Spread the seasoned seeds on a baking sheet, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and bake for 20-30 minutes, tossing them occasionally. For extra crispiness, use the broiler on low until they turn golden brown.

Keep your roasted pumpkin seeds in an airtight container, and they’ll remain fresh for 2-3 weeks. These seeds are not just a tasty snack; they’re rich in fiber and zinc, making them an excellent on-the-go snack.

Roasting pumpkin seeds is an easy and enjoyable tradition. Everyone and anyone can make these crispy bite size snacks without the hassle!

Enjoy! 🎃🍂😋
