Pumpkin seeds four ways

Got some pumpkin seeds on your hands?

Then, you're on the way to a frugal, tasty snack!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Quickly rinse and dry about 2 cups of pumpkin seeds.
Mix the seeds with 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of oil.

Now, choose a flavor:

Sweet with a kick:
Add 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper.

Add 1 tablespoon curry powder.

Onions and garlic:
Add 1 tablespoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon onion powder.

Sugar and spice:
Add 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1 tablespoon brown sugar.

After stirring in the additional spices, spread the seeds on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Allow to cool and salt to taste. 

Eat as a snack or toss on a salad. Yummy and healthy!
