Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


Happy Halloween! We went out for sushi (random) and came home and passed out little packs of organic gummi bears to the trick-or-treaters (no, I did not consider giving out bags of carrot sticks) while the kids ran around in their costumes (one bumble bee and one turtle) and we munched on these pumpkin seeds that I had roasted earlier after the pumpkin-carving extravaganza. Here’s the easy recipe …

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

1. Rinse all the slime (grin) and pulp off of the pumpkin seeds
2. Dry with a towel and place on a rimmed baking sheet
3. Toss with a few tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper and your favorite spice (some good ideas: red pepper, oregano, Italian seasonings or whatever you like)
4. Roast in a 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes (keep an eye on these guys–they turn golden brown quickly and then burn fast)
