Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Once you have scooped out all the flesh from your pumpkin – do not discard the seeds! They make a super tasty and healthy snack!

  • Scoop out the seeds once you are carving your pumpkin and save them
  • Wash them in a bowl and remove any flesh – guess who will love this job!!?? Little ones…Big bowl and a little water…they will be at it for a while!
  • If you have no patience for the children doing it then fill a bowl of water and dump the seeds and left over flesh into it. Stir it for a few minutes and you will find that the seeds automatically come to the surface – simply scoop them out!
  • Lay them on a tea towel over night to dry
  • When dry, place them in a bowl and toss them in any (or all) of the below:
    • olive oil
    • soya sauce
    • garlic powder
    • chilli
  • Place them on a baking sheet on a tray and bake them at 120C for about 30 minutes tossing every 15-20 minutes to ensure they don’t burn
  • Once done, let them cool completely!
  • They are lovely and crisp and a great source of protein!
  • Will keep in the fridge for months – but probably won’t last a day!!!
