After you've used your pumpkins for fall decorations and freshly baked pies, you're left with cups of fresh pumpkin seeds. Once dried and toasted, pumpkin seeds can be eaten alone or used in recipes to add a healthy crunch. You can season them with salt, cinnamon and sugar, or any combination of herbs and spices. Roast your pumpkin seeds on the stove top for a quick and delicious snack.
Heat the oil. Coat the bottom of a skillet with vegetable oil over medium heat.
Add the pumpkin seeds. Stir the seeds constantly until they begin to brown.
Remove and cool the pumpkin seeds. Once the seeds are a light brown, transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Allow to cool.
Toss in seasonings. Add the pumpkin seeds and the seasonings to a container. Secure the lid and shake the seeds to coat.
