Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


While my roommates and I were watching scary movies and carving pumpkins this weekend I came up with the idea to make roasted pumpkins seeds.  I had never done it before, but I had heard so many delicious and nutritious things about pumpkin seeds that I thought I would take a stab at it.  Luckily for me, my roommate is an incredible cook, so she knew just the right ingredients to make these tasty seeds. 

Step One:  Remove all the seeds from a pumpkin and let the seeds soak in water for 35-40 minutes.

Step Two:  Rinse seeds in a strainer to remove any remaining pumpkin.

Step Three: Place all the seeds onto a large cookies sheet. Drizzle over seeds the following:
• Olive oil
• Worcestershire sauce
• Soy sauce
• Black pepper
• Season-All

Step Four:  Place in a pre heated oven at 425˚ degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Step Five: Let seeds cool and enjoy! 

How easy was that? Not only do these seeds taste amazing, they will fill your house will a wonderful and festive smell. So this Halloween when you finish carving your pumpkin, rather than throwing away your seeds, try roasting them! You won’t be disappointed.

    Another great way to make them is to sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on them instead of the Olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, Soy sauce, Black pepper, and Season-All.
    It’s a sweeter version and equally delicious 🙂
