These roasted pumpkin seeds are dropped at you by fall. We have to benefit from the easy issues like pumpkins.
I’m going a bit of nuts once 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 effective pairing with my roasted sugar pumpkin recipe BUT don’t really feel like you could 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 appears like your hand is roofed in worm guts.
When you’re carving your pumpkin, use a bowl to gather seeds and stringy components. Don’t throw this out! Get your youngsters to select the seeds.
You don’t must get all the goop off (pumpkin guts) of the seeds earlier than you roast them. Simply take off the large 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 may customise the flavour.
Beneath, I’ve included a recipe that goes to the candy facet of the style spectrum. Add some cayenne and you should have a spicy and salty snack.
You would strive pumpkin spice, pepper, curry powder..… No matter your favourite spice flavors – simply toss them on the seeds. I recommend attempting 1/2 teaspoon for one cup of pumpkin seeds to begin since you may overwhelm them with spices.
Have you ever roasted pumpkin seeds? How do you taste them?
