Toasted Pumpkin Seedsphoto by: cantaloupealone

This a really simple and tasty quick snack. The recipe is also very versatile. Try swapping the pumpkin seeds for almonds or sunflower seeds- or use all three!

Tamari & Sea Salt Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

You will need (adjust the amounts to your liking):

Soak your pumpkin seeds in the tamari for 15 minutes. Then lightly toast them either in the oven or in a pan with the tamari until they are dry and fragrant for about 5-8 minutes on medium heat. Add the sea salt, mix and serve.

  • Pumpkin Seeds, 4 tablespoons
  • Tamari, 2 tablespoons
  • Himilayan Sea Salt, about a teaspoon

I’ve been toasting the pumpkin or squash seeds from my CSA share & my youngest granddaughter (5) LOVES them!
I bake small to medium squash by pricking it (several ~ 1/4″ triangles) & roasting them whole in ~ 375* oven for 45 min or so (depends on the size of the squash) The seeds are a bit soft when I cut into it, so I rinse, sprinkle with a sea & hawaiian salt combo & return them to the oven for 10 min or so.

Hi Dia.

Toasted pumpkin seeds are yum aren’t they! Ohh your recipe there sounds great! What is Hawaiian salt like? I want to try and roast/toast them with differ flavours and see how they taste! I’m thinking honey and tamari next time..or honey and some other flavour!
