Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic raw pumpkin seeds, pepitas
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 drops sriracha or hot sauce, 1/8 teaspoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, less if using table salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees and place oven rack on center position.
  • In a small bowl, add all ingredients, changing quantities to your liking. Note; the turmeric absorbs a lot of the oil after it's added. Also, I highly recommend not skipping the sriracha. It adds just the right bit of heat and is a good pairing with turmeric.
  • Stir all ingredients until well mixed. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, until pumpkin seeds start to darken and plump up slightly.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  • Eat alone as a healthy snack or toss over any green salad or roasted vegetable dish. The pumpkin seeds can even be ground in a food processrr and added to a favorite vinaigrette dressing.
  • Left over pumpkin seeds keep very well for up to a week in an air-tight container.
