Toasted Squash Seeds
Seeds are the “free gift with purchase” when you have a squash. Turn them into a tasty snack with this recipe.
- Seeds from one winter squash (pumpkin, butternut, acorn, delicata, etc), separated from pulp
- 1 teaspoon vegetable, canola, or olive oil
- 1 large pinch salt
- Spices of your choice:
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Spread the seeds on a baking sheet and cook for about 30 minutes. Every 10 minutes or so, stir the seeds around a bit so they cook evenly. Seeds are done when they are crisp and golden brown.
Note: some seeds (especially from acorn squash) may begin to pop. Once they’re popping in the oven, they’re done.
