Pumpkin season is in full bloom. So what is the best way to use up all those left over pumpkin seeds? Roast them! Pumpkin seeds are a great source of zinc, which is important for a healthy immune system and for vision. Pumpkin seeds are also rich in magnesium, iron and antioxidants.

There are a lot of ways to season pumpkin seeds: spicy, salty, sweet…or all of the above! I want to share my favorite ways…feel free to experiment with how much of each seasoning you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • jalapeno powder
  • ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. Preaheat oven to 300 F
  2. Clean up the pumpkin seeds by removing the pulp
  3. Pat dry all the seeds with paper towels- try to dry them thoroughly
  4. Toss pumpkin seeds in a bowl with the oil
  5. Add the sea salt and coat all the seeds evenly. Then, do the same with the rest of the seasonings.
  6. Spread pumpkin seeds in a single layer on baking sheet.
  7. Bake for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally so that they roast evenly.
  8. Enjoy!
