I have wanted to try this recipe since my landlady gave me a whole pumpkin for the holidays. 

She has a lovely little farm, and through the kindness of her heart, she’s always blessing me with produce from her little farm. 

I wasn’t sure what to do with a whole pumpkin, but I knew I’d have fun creating new pumpkin recipes.

After cutting your pumpkin, the first thing you do is discard the flesh and seeds. 

But today, we will scoop those seeds, wash them, and roast them. It’s the perfect snack for any time of the day.

How To Make Roasted Pumpkin Seeds 

Once you’ve washed, dried, and seasoned your pumpkin seeds, it’s time to roast them in the oven. 

Directions:

  1. Scoop the seeds out and toss them in a bowl of cold water. Rinse seeds to remove the strings and flesh. It may take 1-2 tries to get as much flesh off. 
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  3. Pat dry on a clean dish towel or paper towel. The drier the better. 
  4. Season with chili powder, parsley, curry powder, and salt in a dry bowl. 
  5. Place seeds on a baking tray and drizzle oil over them. Bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool and enjoy!
