Roasted Garlic and Herb Pumpkin Seeds

A great idea and popular project you can create with your Thanksgiving or Halloween pumpkins is to roast the pumpkin seeds. Children can help with this recipe and they will enjoy being of assistance in the cooking process. This is a fantastic way to encourage children to try new foods and taste pumpkin seeds for the first time.
Roasted Garlic and Herb Pumpkin Seeds

It is a simple project that can be done on a lazy afternoon or a rainy weekend. You can use any spice combination you wish, maybe even just the spices you already have on hand at the house.
This time I chose to do a savory flavor, the whole family liked it and I hope that you do as well.

Store in a pretty mason jar!
Pumpkin Seeds {fresh/raw}
Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Lemon Pepper
Black Pepper
Baking Sheet

Oven: 325 Degrees F
Bake: 20 minutes

Step 1:
Boil a pot of water with sea salt. Scoop out pumpkin seeds, clean them off.

Step 2:
Boil seeds for 10 minutes.
Strain seeds.

Step 3:
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.
Prep baking sheet with foil, drizzle a tad of olive oil on sheet.


Step 4:
Spread seeds on baking sheet, season with sea salt. Next, add your spices by layering them lightly with each spice. Toss them in the oil and then sprinkle again with spices and drizzle with a little more oil.

Step 5:
Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Turn seeds over at 10 minutes to roast each side.

These are great as an appetizer for a dinner party, cocktail hour snacks, or maybe even a neighbor gift idea during the holidays. There are so many sweets people give throughout the holidays, sometimes it's nice to switch it up and give something savory!
