Roasted Sea Salt Pumpkin Seeds

It’s pumpkin carving season!  You know what that means?  Roasted pumpkin seeds!  These are highly addicting, and not to mention nutritious.  Let the kids carve out their gourds while you make this treat (no tricks here).

raw pumpkin seeds
1 tsp olive oil
sea salt to taste

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Clean out the seeds of your pumpkins taking off the stringy bits.  Rinse the seeds in a colander and dry with a kitchen towel.  In a bowl, add the olive oil and the seeds.  Add the salt and toss together.  If you have a bigger pumpkin or multiple pumpkins, add more salt.  You can always add more after it has come out of the oven to taste.

Place the seeds on a cookie sheet in a single layer.  Bake for 40 mins. Let cool, and add more salt if needed.

Now you can enjoy the treats!  If you’re feeling bold, try it with some chili powder, or add some herbs like thyme, oregano, or rosemary.  Treat or treat!
