Roasted Winter Squash or Pumpkin Seeds 

Roasted Seeds



  • Leftover guts of Winter Squash or pumpkin (this is the part with seeds and squash strings that you scoop out)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder (optional)
  • Paprika (optional)
Roasted Seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Separate winter squash seeds from the rest of the squash guts. It’s easier to do this in a bowl of cool water. Once finished put seeds into large mixing bowl, add olive oil (till well coated) then add a sprinkling of salt and optional seasonings to taste.
  3. Roast seeds for 35-40 minutes until light brown, stirring occasionally. Let cool and serve, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks
