Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

When making my pumpkin puree, I kept thinking about the flavors I would use to season the pumpkin seeds. I knew I wanted more than just the traditional salt and I also knew I wanted some spice. It is really important to note that these are kid tested and approved 😀 wohoo!

Here is what I came up with…

 

Ingredients:

Seeds of one medium sized pumpkin

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

*These are great on salads and soups. The shells become crunchy and can be eaten with the inside seed!
