Tip of the Day: Roasting Pumpkin Seeds

Don’t throw away those pumpkin seeds after carving your Halloween designs… Instead, make a little snack loaded with protein and fiber.

Simply rinse the seeds under cold water and pick up out the pulp and strings. Then place seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil or melted butter. Sprinkle with a little sea salt then bake at 325 degrees until lightly toasted (about 15-20 minutes).

Enjoy!

    I thought I was the only one. I love to season mine with a little lemon pepper.

    I just roasted my pumpkin seeds with salt and pepper, they were delicious!

    I then used the insides to make risotto, bhajis, curry, pie, soup… loads of things. What an amazing vegetable.
