Roasted Pumpkin Seeds: Keep the Good Stuff

I am going just a little nuts after I see the pumpkins present up at farm stands, Dealer Joe’s, and my native grocery store. I simply need to hug them!! (and purchase them earlier than I hug them)

This roasted pumpkin seeds recipe is an efficient pairing with my roasted sugar pumpkin recipe BUT don’t really feel like it is advisable to purchase an “consuming pumpkin” to make pumpkin seeds.

Any pumpkin makes nice pumpkin seeds for roasting!

The within of a pumpkin is fairly scary as a result of if appears like your hand is roofed in worm guts.

If you end up carving your pumpkin, use a bowl to gather seeds and stringy components. Don’t throw this out! Get your kids to select the seeds.

You don’t have to get all the goop off (pumpkin guts) of the seeds earlier than you roast them. Simply take off the large chunks. The strands of pumpkin add to the flavour and texture of your seeds.

That is what mine appear to be earlier than I put them within the oven:

Pumpkin seeds are nutritious (ex: 28% of your DV of Iron in 1/4 cup) and they’re simple to cook dinner. The enjoyable a part of roasting pumpkin seeds is which you can customise the flavour.

Under, I’ve included a recipe that goes to the candy facet of the style spectrum. Add some cayenne and you’ll have a spicy and salty snack.

You can strive pumpkin spice, pepper, curry powder..… No matter your favourite spice flavors – simply toss them on the seeds. I recommend making an attempt 1/2 teaspoon for one cup of pumpkin seeds to begin since you would possibly overwhelm them with spices.

Have you ever roasted pumpkin seeds? How do you taste them?
