Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (or olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Procedures

  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. 2

    Scoop out the inside of your pumpkin, and separate seeds from pulp. Don't worry if there's a little pulp left on the seeds when you roast them—it only adds flavor. Just remove the biggest pieces so that the seeds are easy to toss.

  3. 3

    In a bowl, toss the seeds with the melted butter, coating thoroughly. Add salt and seasonings.

  4. 4

    Spread seeds in one even layer across a greased baking sheet (or you can use a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil).

  5. 5

    Bake for 30 minutes, or until the seeds are golden brown. Stir the seeds every so often while they're baking, so that they toast evenly.
