Every Halloween I say the same thing, “I’m going to make roasted pumpkin seeds” and every year it’s the same thing. Scoop the pumpkin seeds out, wash them, put them out on a cookie sheet to let them dry out and then for whatever reason I never get around to roasting them and they end up in the garbage. WELL not this year! This year I finally made them! And they turned out pretty good if I say so myself!
I got a wicked recipe from Bon Appetit! Very simple:
1 Egg White
Preheat your oven to 350F. Take a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper. The recipe said to spray it with cooking spray, but I didn’t have that so I just put a little bit of olive oil down. Then in a separate bowl whisk together the egg white, olive oil and lemon juice (again the recipe called for lime juice but I didn’t have that on hand so I tried lemon instead!). Then add in the remaining ingredients. Throw in the pumpkin seeds and mix well so they are all covered in the sauce, then put them out on the cookie sheet and try to get them spread out evenly. Put them in the oven and bake for 24 min. I stirred them around after 10 min. Remove from the oven and let cool. I like a little more salt so I sprinkled on a little bit of extra salt. Don’t wait for them to cool too much though or it will be difficult to get them off the parchment paper (trust me!).
