Roasted Pink Pumpkin Seeds

Tis the season for winter squash – Kabocha, Acorn, Delicata, Butternut and more!

I love winter squash. They look pretty, taste great and are full of nutrition. Sometimes I shop with a particular variety in mind. Other times I just choose what I think is prettiest. Whatever variety I’m cooking, the seeds get saved for roasting.

When I first saw pink pumpkins, I wanted one just because they are so pretty. Fortunately, they also have amazing flavor and the seeds are excellent for roasting – plump and tasty!

For my first batch, I decided to go with simple since I wasn’t sure how the flavor would be. I’m glad I did, since they really didn’t need anything else to compete with their natural flavor. No oil is needed!


Pink Pumpkin Seeds

Salt (I used a coarse Himalayan salt in keeping with the pink theme)


Pre-heat oven to 375ยบ

Arrange seeds on an ungreased cookie sheet

Let them sit for 15 minutes or so to dry out a little. Stir them up to rearrange them on the pan before putting them in the oven to keep them from sticking together in a clump.

Sprinkle with salt

Cook for about 10 minutes until browned and crispy

    This would hit the spot right now since it’s cold outside.

    I like to eat pumpkin seeds on their own or in granola.
