Nutrition Q & A

How Do I Toast Pumpkin Seeds?

Save the seeds when you carve your pumpkin for Halloween. They taste great when toasted and they're nutritious. One ounce of pumpkin seeds provides 5 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 5 grams of fat (1 gram saturated, 4 grams unsaturated).

To toast pumpkin seeds: Rinse seeds to remove pulp and strings. Spread seeds on a medium baking sheet that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle lightly with salt or seasoned salt. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes or until lightly toasted. Stir occasionally during cooking.
