I posted this recipe way back in 2012, but I recently made it again and updated the photography on the original entry (which also explains how to properly save pumpkin seeds, if you’re interested). This is a really easy recipe, and it has just the right amount of spiciness (you can omit the cayenne pepper if you prefer a bit milder flavour).
Lime and Chili Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Seeds from one pumpkin
3 tbsp freshly-squeezed lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt (if you have coarse salt, use that)
1/2 tsp chili powder
pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius). Combine all ingredients except seeds in a small bowl. Carefully wash pumpkin seeds in cool water, removing all of the extra bits of pulp. Dry the seeds thoroughly between several layers of paper towel and transfer to the bowl with the lime and chili. Combine thoroughly and spread seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast seeds in preheated oven for 10 minutes, then remove pan and stir the seeds, spreading them out once again in a single layer. Place in oven for another 10 minutes, then remove and allow to cool. Enjoy!
