Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

  • Pumpkin Seeds from one Pumpkin
  • 2 TB of Vegetable Oil
  • Chili Powder to Sprinkle
  • Salt to Sprinkle
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Spread oil on a brownie pan.
  • Lay seeds in one layer.
  • Sprinkle with chili powder (I used ichimi, a Japanese chili powder) and salt.
  • Bake in the oven for 45 minutes (or thereabouts!), checking every 10 minutes and stirring seeds.


  1. This may be a really naive question, but do you shell the seeds first? How do you do that?

    This is an interesting blog -- maybe I'll find something new to try!

  2. Nope, you don't shell them first. Just scoop them out, rinse, and get rid of as much of the pulp as you can. I don't get really zealous about the pulp removal, however, a little bit just makes them taste more pumpkiny.
