Ingredients (serves 12)1.5 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons olive or canola oil
1 pinch salt
Your favorite seasonings (SALTY: garlic powder, paprika, cumin - or SWEET: light coating of cinnamon and sugar)
Preparation1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Cut open the pumpkin and use a strong metal spoon to scoop out the insides. Separate the seeds from the stringy core. Rinse the seeds with water in a colander to remove pulp.
