About This Recipe
|This recipe appears in:||How to Roast Perfect Pumpkin Seeds|
- Seeds of 1 medium pumpkin (about 1/2 cup), orange flesh removed, patted dry
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
- 4 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1 egg
Mix together 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder, and 4 teaspoons brown sugar in a bowl to form a paste. Set aside.
Crack the whites of one egg into a small bowl and quickly whip just until small bubbles form. Pour a little over the seeds to coat lightly, then let excess egg whites drip off through your fingertips or a colander.
Drop the seeds into the espresso mixture and rub together to coat. Pour the seeds onto a rimmed baking sheet and roast.
Eat all in your pajamas. Tell no one.
