Bon Appetit - Pumpkin Seeds!

After you have finished carving your pumpkin it is always best NOT to throw out those pumpkin seeds! They can be a tasty treat everyone will love :) 

Did you know that pumpkin seeds are not only yummy but healthy too? Here's some benefits: They help prevent cancer, rich in minerals and protein, help your prostate and more :) If you are interested on learning other ways pumpkin seeds are healthy check out this website:

You want to prepare your pumpkin seeds before you roast them. Remove all the pulp from the seeds  Once you have finished that rinse them off. Then dry them and leave them on a pan overnight. You can also skip rising the seeds off and keeping the pulp on the seeds, it is up to you! 

Here is the basic way to cook them:
Put your pumpkin seeds in a bowl with 1/4 salt and 2 tsp of vegetable oil, make sure all the seeds are evenly coated. Then put your seeds on a backing sheet and preheat the oven to 360. After the oven is preheated put in the pumpkin seeds for 15 - 20 minutes or until seeds are a deep golden brown. 

You can get creative with what you put on your pumpkin seeds! In my family we like to put soya sauce on them and some spices. You can also put chili powder, garlic powder, Cajun powder, or any other strong seasoning. If you want it sweet why not try cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg? You can also use hot sauce or Worcestershire sauce. The possibilities are endless! 

When cooking them you can also have the oven setting on broil or cook them in a pan (when cooking in a pan make sure you always keep them moving). 

That is how you bake pumpkin seeds! I am thinking of doing another Halloween tutorial tomorrow :) Let me know if there are any that you would like to see, I am still planning on doing the mad hatter! So, that is all, I think I am going to go roast some seeds now because writing this post is making me reallyyy hungry, lol :) Talk to you tomorrowwww!
