I was roasting one of the last pumpkins to survive into the winter season and decided to spend a bit of extra time to try out roasting the seeds. Worth it? Yep – anytime I can use up food I already have is a win in my book. I found my starter recipe here from Oh She Glows. I changed it up a bit by using chili powder, chili flakes and cayenne pepper powder to give it a bit of a kick. I had meant to only add a tiny pinch of chili powder but that didn’t happen so I kept adding the spicy stuff from the pantry. Why not keep it going?
That being said, I’ll probably try out a few other recipes before I settle on a favorite. This one didn’t quite make the cut. Most likely I’ll try:
- Food Network’s Basic Recipe
- The Prairie Homestead (the original inspiration for roasting seeds but somehow I couldn’t find the post!)
Now I just have to be patient enough to wait another year for fresh pumpkins…
