Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are deliciously easy and the perfect way to make use of the leftovers from carving a jack-o’-lantern. Be careful though; this light snack will go quick!



Follow these short steps to get those crispy roasted seeds! But if you have already carved your pumpkin, this will be an even quicker process.

  • Cut the top or bottom off of the pumpkin using a sharp kitchen knife or a serrated knife made for pumpkins.
  • Next, scoop out the pumpkin seeds and place them in a colander under running water to separate the bits of remaining pulp. Discard the pulp and drain well.
  • Now, transfer the pumpkin seeds into a large pot with water and salt. Bring them to a boil over medium heat. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 additional minutes.
  • After draining the seeds, pour them into a bowl. Stir in olive oil and Spice World Ready-to-Use Organic Minced Garlic until the seeds are coated.
  • Spread the coated pumpkin seeds onto a large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 375°F for 25-30 minutes, stirring and turning every 5 minutes, until the seeds are golden and crunchy.
  • Take the seeds out, allow them to cool, and store them in an airtight container until you are ready to serve.
