  • 1 CupServings


  • 1 cup unsalted shelled pumpkin seeds or pepitas
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


1. In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, add pumpkin seeds. Toast seeds, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes, until they begin to brown and pop. Seeds will burn quickly, so as soon as they begin to brown, remove pan from the heat.

2. Transfer seeds to a bowl and toss with sea salt.
