Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

After carving your Halloween pumpkins, roast the seeds for a light and healthy snack.
Ingredients

Raw pumpkin seeds
Oil
Salt

Directions

Step 1: Rinse pumpkin seeds under cold water and pick out the pulp and strings. (This is easiest just after you’ve removed the seeds from the pumpkin, before the pulp has dried). Place clean pumpkin seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and allow to dry for a few hours, stirring once or twice.

Step 2: Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 3: Drizzle dried pumpkin seeds with oil, sprinkle with seasoning salt, then toss to coat and spread seeds out evenly on the baking sheet again. Roast on bottom rack of the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden, stirring every five minutes.
