Roasted Gourd Seeds Recipe

Aug 30, 2021 | Recipes

Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • Seeds from one squash Sweet
  • 1/2 Tsp cinnamon 
  • 1/4 Tsp all-spice
  • 2-3 Tsp maple syrup
    Savoury:
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of garlic power
  • Optional pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2-3 Tsp extra virgin olive oil

*These ingredients scale with the amount of seeds you have. The maple syrup does add a lot of flavour, but its main job is to stick the all-spice and cinnamon to the seeds. Make this super healthy with less maple syrup.

 

Serve these on their own as a snack, or as a garnish for yogurt parfaits, squash soups, and even heartier dishes like goulash.

Preparation

  1. Pre-heat the oven on roast to 150 C (302 F)
  2. After you’ve washed and dried the seeds, set them aside in a small bowl.
  3. Sweet:
    1. Pour the maple syrup over the seeds, and don’t worry about tossing them just yet.
    2. In a cast iron, over medium low heat, toast the cinnamon and allspice until fragrant. Make sure it doesn’t start to smoke.
    3. With a spatula, transfer the cinnamon and all-spice to the seed bowl, and mix until evenly coated.
    4. Scatter the seeds across and baking tray and roast until golden brown and slightly crunchy (35-45 minutes). The seeds get crunchier as they cool. 
  4. Savoury:
    1. Mix all the ingredients together is a bowl and toss your seeds until evenly coated.
    2. Scatter the seeds across and baking tray and roast until golden brown and slightly crunchy (35-45 minutes). The seeds get crunchier as they cool.
