BBQ Pumpkin Seeds

Spicy roasted pumpkin seeds are a healthy snack for all. For variations, try Sesame Pumpkin Seeds or Cheesy Pumpkin Seeds.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cleaned raw whole pumpkin seeds

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • A pinch of cayenne pepper

Preparation

Pre-heat the oven to 375ºF. In a small saucepan, bring 4 cups water, the pumpkin seeds and 1 tablespoon salt to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes, then drain. Pat the seeds dry between layers of paper towels.

Toss the seeds with the EVOO and the remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Spread in a single layer on a greased, foil-lined baking sheet. Roast until golden, 10-12 minutes.

Combine the seasonings in a small bowl and toss to coat the pumpkin seeds. Roast for 5 minutes more.
