Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Have you ever felt guilty throwing away pumpkin seeds?

If you feel the same way as I do, there is a ridiculously easy way to avoid wasting those little treasures: roast them and consume as…

snack,

topping for salads or soups or…

add-in cookies and bars!

I roasted them with olive oil, honey and salt but you can be as creative as you want, skiping the honey, adding some pepper or any other spice of your choice.

Enjoy!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Olive oil

  • Wash the pumpkin seeds and get rid of the remaining pumpkin.
  • Let dry the seeds in a strainer, preferably over night. Don’t use a paper towel because the seeds will stick to it.
