How to roast pumpkin seeds from your carved pumpkin from Halloween for a healthy treat.


  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 3 cups water
  • seeds from one pumpkin
  • your favorite seasoning
  • cooking spray or aquafaba (for oil-free cooking)


  1. Scoop out the seeds from your pumpkin and separate them from the pumpkin pulp.
  2. Soak your seeds overnight in a brine made from 3 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of salt.
  3. Drain the seeds and let them dry, around five hours.
  4. Once the seeds are dry, spritz with cooking spray or use aquafaba (for oil-free cooking), just enough to lightly coat the seeds, then add your favorite seasonings.
  5. Roast at 325°F (160°C) for 25 minutes stirring halfway through.
  6. Let the seeds cool completely before storing them.
