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…
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
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Clean pumpkin seeds.
2.Blanch in boiling water for 3 minutes.
3. Strain pumpkin seeds and then pat dry. Add in spices, olive oil and Worcestershire sauce.
4. Arrange on baking sheet and place in oven.
5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until seeds are crisp.
*These are great on salads and soups. The shells become crunchy and can be eaten with the inside seed!
