Gourmet Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Whether you are carving pumpkins or making something yummy, be sure to save those pumpkin seeds for a fun treat!

  • pumpkin seeds
  • olive oil
  • sea salt
  • inspirational seasoning (optional)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Remove the bulk of the pulp from seeds. You can wash the seeds or not, your choice, just make sure they aren't really wet when you go to prepare them. Place seeds in a bowl, drizzle a little olive oil, sprinkle a bit of sea salt, then add any inspiration you like. Toss seeds to create an even coating. Place seeds on a baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes or until golden brown, stirring periodically.

Here are a few ideas for seasonings: chili powder, Cajun seasoning, tequila lime seasoning, cayenne pepper, black pepper, seasoning blend, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian herbs, Parmesan cheese, and cinnamon.

Side Note: We tried Parmesan cheese, chili powder, garlic powder, and cinnamon. All were good, but the Parmesan were my personal favorite.
