Before you get cracking on this healthy and delicious snack, let us share some facts about pumpkin seeds. Did you know that pumpkins (and the seeds) lower the risk of stroke or that they preserve eye sight? It’s true. Not only that, but pumpkins slow down the aging process. They are also full of vitamin E, potassium, magnesium and other nutrients.
Here’s what you need to roast the seeds:
1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
You can add any other spices you want to the pumpkin seeds before sticking them in the oven. Some people like the earthy bitter taste of cumin while others like them with plain old salt.
