Don’t let those delicious little pumpkin seeds go to waste! Roast them and EAT them! They turn into a delicious little fall snack that will get gobbled up by all.
Roasting pumpkin seeds is not something I do every year, which is ridiculous. Roasted pumpkin seeds are DELICIOUS! And addicting! And salty and yummy and impossible to stop eating. We carve at least two pumpkins every October, so that lends for a lot of seeds to roast and enjoy.
How do you clean and roast pumpkin seeds?
Separate the pulp from the seeds and then rinse the seeds thoroughly in cold water. Spread them in an even layer on a baking sheet and let dry for a few minutes. Add butter (or oil) and salt and bake in the oven for 25-minutes, stirring once in the middle. Remove from the oven and enjoy immediately!
Are pumpkin seeds healthy?
Not only are roasted pumpkin seeds totally delicious, they also come with some nutritional benefits! They are a great source of protein, omega-3, fiber, magnesium and zinc. Yay! Eat up!
How long can pumpkin seeds sit before cooking?
There isn’t always time for roasting pumpkin seeds right away and that is just fine because they will wait patiently for you! Store them covered in the fridge for 3-4 weeks or at room temperature for 5-7 days.
Have a great Halloween week, friends!
