“Smoked paprika and garlic powder punch up the flavor in this easy roasted pumpkin seeds recipe.”

Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups fresh pumpkin seeds (see Tip)

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • 2 Combine oil, paprika, garlic powder, oregano and salt in a medium bowl. Add pumpkin seeds and toss to coat. Spread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • 3 Bake the seeds, stirring occasionally, until dry and toasted, 40 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Tip: Whether you're carving jack-o'-lanterns or prepping a pie pumpkin, save the seeds for these tasty treats. Squash seeds work too! (Try butternut, kabocha or spaghetti squash seeds.) To get the seeds recipe-ready: Place them in a bowl of warm water (the seeds float to the top, making them easier to separate from the threads) and remove any flesh that's sticking to them. Drain and pat with a towel to dry well.
  • To make ahead: Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
