I’m documenting this because they turned out better than my last few attempts. Last night was pumpkin carving with Nesrin (her first time!), and we saved the seeds. We also made this soup which was really, really good. It feels like Fall!
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Separate seeds from pulp, and rinse. Boil the seeds in salted water for 10 minutes, then drain. Coat a pan lightly with olive oil, and spread seeds in pan. Shake it a bit to coat the seeds. The seeds should form one layer. Sprinkle with sea salt, cayenne pepper, and paprika. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until nicely browned. Let them cool before eating.
