  • 2 cups raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons neutral flavoured oil (see note below)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (see note below)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Scoop out the insides of your pumpkin.
  3. Place the seeds into a colander and rinse the pumpkin parts away so you are only left with the seeds. You will have to separate a lot of the seeds from the pumpkin, they don't always separate on their own. Shake out excess water.
  4. Pick through the seeds and remove any that are not going to make good roasted seeds (see picture above).
  5. Place the seeds onto a baking sheet and pat them dry.
  6. Add the seeds to a bowl and stir with the oil to coat all the seeds.
  7. After the seeds are coated, sprinkle in the salt and stir so it's all evenly distributed.
  8. Place seeds on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden (about 15-20 minutes). Keep an eye on them and stir once at about 8 minutes in.
  9. Remove from the oven and let the seeds cool on the sheet before enjoying.
