Worcestershire Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

11 Dec

If you are looking for a salty, crispy snack but don’t want the guilt of potato chips, these Worcestershire Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are perfect.  I remember when I was younger, my mom would always roast up the pumpkin seeds leftover after we carved our Halloween pumpkins.  I could devour an entire pumpkin’s worth of seeds in about ten minutes back then, and not much has changed.  These are quick, easy, and a great way to use up a delicious treat that would otherwise go straight into the garbage.

Worcestershire Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

3 cups pumpkin seeds, rinsed well

6 cups water

1 tbs. kosher salt

2-3 tbs. extra virgin olive oil

1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce

Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Preheat oven to 400º.

Bring water to a boil.  Add 1 tbs. kosher salt and pumpkin seeds and let simmer for 10 minutes.  Drain.

Cover a baking sheet with tinfoil and place pumpkin seeds in single layer.  Toss with olive oil and Worcestershire sauce to evenly coat.  Season with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper and make sure the seeds are in a uniform layer.

Bake seeds on top rack until golden brown, 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through.  Cool seeds completely before storing in an airtight container.
