    Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

    I ‘ve promised you this recipe in the article on the benefits of pumpkin and because I am a girl who keeps her prominses, here it is: Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, an easy, tasty and very healthy salty snack. You must read why you should not throw away the pumpkin seeds here. You will be surprised how good they are for our body!

    So, you bought a pumpkin, you wasted so much time to peel it and now what? You’ ll  throw away the seeds? The most important part of the vegetable?  Of course not! You will separate the seeds from the pumkin’s fibers, you will wash them well under running water in a colander, you’’ ll spread them on a clean towel to dry and then enjoy them, either raw, or roasted by following my recipe or make your own spice combinations. If the seeds are from a relatively small pumpkin, you might as well eat them as it is, without removing the shell. If the pumpkin is big, and so are the seeds, it’s probably best to eat shelled.

    Doing an internet research, I read that one way to properly salted pumpkin seeds is to boil them briefly in salted water before roasting them. I think they are absolutely right.
