How To Make Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Roasted pumpkin seeds are a tasty way to make use of leftover pumpkin guts. This simple tutorial will take you from pumpkin to table in no time.

Step 1: Remove The Seeds

Set aside the seeds as you hollow out your jack-o'-lantern.

Step 2: Wash Them Off

Put your seeds in a colander and rinse them off with water.

Step 3: Separate The Seeds

Try to separate the seeds from the pulp as much as possible. Then rinse them again.

Step 4: Dry The Seeds

Dry off the seeds with a towel. The dryer they are the quicker the roasting process will be.

Step 5: Season The Seeds

Toss the seeds in a bowl with the seasoning of your choice. For these I used a mix of olive oil, salt, garlic powder, paprika and black pepper.

Step 6: Roast The Seeds

Spread out the seasoned pumpkin seeds on a lined baking sheet. Then put them in the oven at 350°F for about 12 to 15 minutes, tossing them every 5 minutes to make sure they are evenly roasted. When the seeds are a golden brown color, they are ready!

Step 7: Enjoy!

Put the seeds in a bowl or container and enjoy your healthy fall snack.
