Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe


Pumpkin seeds left after carving the Halloweenies! As you rinse them in cold water: remove strands of pumpkin fiber, skin, etc. It's ok to leave some attached for added flavor!

Spread 'em out on a cookie sheet and pat dry with paper towels. Leave 'em out overnight with fresh paper towels covering them.

If still damp the next morning, heat the oven up to 200 degrees F and let them dry for about half an hour or more... Figure out what size pot you have the seeds would fit in with room to spare, and melt a little butter of Smart Balance... take the warm seeds from the cookie sheet and mix in the pot with the melted spread. I use 2 to 3 tsp of butter -. they are ready for the oven!


  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. 2
    While it's OK to leave some strings and pulp on your seeds (it adds flavor) clean off any major chunks.
  3. 3
    Toss pumpkin seeds in a the pot with the melted spread and then toss in a little salt or seasoning salt..
  4. 4
    Spread pumpkin seeds in a single layer on baking sheet.
  5. 5
    Bake for about 35 minutes or until golden brown. Stir or flip them once midway through.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
