These roasted pumpkin seeds are delivered to you by fall. We have to benefit from the easy issues like pumpkins.
I am going just a little nuts after I see the pumpkins present up at farm stands, Dealer Joe’s, and my native grocery store. I simply need to hug them!! (and purchase them earlier than I hug them)
This roasted pumpkin seeds recipe is an efficient pairing with my roasted sugar pumpkin recipe BUT don’t really feel like you should purchase an “consuming pumpkin” to make pumpkin seeds.
Any pumpkin makes nice pumpkin seeds for roasting!
The within of a pumpkin is fairly scary as a result of if seems like your hand is roofed in worm guts.
If you find yourself carving your pumpkin, use a bowl to gather seeds and stringy components. Don’t throw this out! Get your kids to select the seeds.
You don’t must get the entire goop off (pumpkin guts) of the seeds earlier than you roast them. Simply take off the massive chunks. The strands of pumpkin add to the flavour and texture of your seeds.
That is what mine appear like earlier than I put them within the oven:
Pumpkin seeds are nutritious (ex: 28% of your DV of Iron in 1/4 cup) and they’re straightforward to prepare dinner. The enjoyable a part of roasting pumpkin seeds is that you would be able to customise the flavour.
Under, I’ve included a recipe that goes to the candy aspect of the style spectrum. Add some cayenne and you’ll have a spicy and salty snack.
You possibly can attempt pumpkin spice, pepper, curry powder..… No matter your favourite spice flavors – simply toss them on the seeds. I counsel making an attempt 1/2 teaspoon for one cup of pumpkin seeds to start out since you may overwhelm them with spices.
Have you ever roasted pumpkin seeds? How do you taste them?
