Roasted Squash Seeds

Fall Session 2014: Week 1
Roasted Squash Seeds

(Heather L.)

Squash seeds are just as tasty as their pumpkin cousins. Here's a simple way to make the
most out of your winter squash. Use these as a garnish on the soup above or save them for
snacking!

Ingredients:
Squash seeds
Olive or organic canola oil (about 1 tablespoon per cup of seeds)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cumin
Salt, to taste

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 300*.
2. Clean the seeds, removing any bits of squash.
3. Dry the seeds on a paper towel.
4. Toss the seeds with oil in a bowl, making sure to coat them thoroughly. Also add a couple
generous pinches of salt.
5. Spread the seeds on a baking sheet without too much overlap. Roast seeds in the oven.
Check them after 10 minutes, stirring them or rotating the baking sheet. Cook another 10­15
minutes. Start checking them in the last 5 minutes to ensure they don't burn.
6. When the seeds are done, sprinkle them with the spices and toss them in a bowl. Allow to
cool and enjoy!
