Recipe of the Month: Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

One of my favorite Halloween traditions is roasting pumpkin seeds. Creating the perfect recipe for roasting pumpkin seeds can be a bit tricky, but I think I’ve finally got the right one.

These are a delicious (and nutritious) seasonal favorite!


  1. Clean the seeds. Once all of the strands have been cleaned off, give them a GOOD rinse with water in a colander.
  2. Boil the seeds for 10 minutes in salt water. Bring the seeds to a boil and reduce the heat to simmer for 10 minutes, then drain the seeds using a colander and dry them lightly with a paper towel.
  3. Spread seeds on a baking sheet and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Massage the oil into seeds and add a generous sprinkle of fine-grain sea salt.
  4. Roast the seeds at 325F for 10 minutes and then remove them from the oven and stir. Roast the seeds for another 8-10 minutes. Test a couple of them, they are done when the shell is crispy and easy to bite through.
  5.  Enjoy the best pumpkin seeds you have ever tasted.

Have a safe, happy Halloween!
