Have you ever tried to Roast Baby Pumpkin Seeds? My husband and kids really love pumpkin seeds, so I thought I would give these a shot. They really enjoyed my Sugar-Glazed Pumpkin Seeds, too! I bought some baby pumpkins to try out roasted pumpkin recipes that I found. So yummy!
As I was cleaning the pumpkins… I noticed that they had a HUGE number of seeds in them. I really wasn’t expecting that many seeds in such a small little pumpkin, but I was glad to see them. I did a simple salted roast, and they came out perfect! Here’s how you can get your perfect roasted pumpkin seeds:
First, make sure you clean all of the pulp from around your pumpkin seeds. The easiest way that I have found is to really get your hands dirty! Take a small handful of seeds, and squish the pulp through your fingers… allowing the seeds to remain in your hands! At first, I thought it was a little yucky, but it wasn’t too bad once I got used to it. My kids LOVED sorting the pumpkin seeds, so you can make it a family event. Lol
Once you have your pumpkin seeds separated, give them a quick spin through a strainer and then place in a medium-sized pot. Fill the water at least an inch above your seeds. Add a generous amount of salt and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 10 minutes and drain. Now, you can either let your seeds dry on their own, or blot them with a paper towel. They do not have to be 100% dry… just not dripping wet.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and place your pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet. Lightly drizzle with olive oil or lightly mist with olive oil spray. Sprinkle salt generously over the top of you seeds and roast for 10-15 minutes. That’s it! It’s that easy to have super yummy roasted baby pumpkin seeds!
These seeds turned out with a crispier shell and a slightly harder inside than the larger pumpkin seeds. You could probably get the same crispy result by cooking larger seeds a little bit longer. Just be careful not to burn the inside. Oh – and if you let them cool a little bit before you eat them… the shells will crisp even more! So good! How do you like your pumpkin seeds?
