Chilli and Cayenne Pumpkin Seed Snack….

“Which came first: The pumpkin or the Pumpkin seed?”

-Pumpkin Nook

Love October…Love Pumpkins! 


Lanterns, soups, pies and roasts, but don’t through out those seeds! 


Cut the pumpkin in half and scape out the seeds with a spoon.


  • Seeds from an edible pumpkin
  • Grinding of sea salt and black pepper
  • Chilli flakes
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Olive oil


Remove the stingy beards…


Rinse with cold water…


Lay out on a baking tray, then oil and season using your favourite flavours.


When crisp and golden, leave to cool on the tray.


  1. Preheat the oven at 180Β°C/350Β°F/gas 4.
  2. Scape the seeds from the pumpkin.
  3. Clean and rinse the seeds.
  4. Spread out on a baking tray.
  5. Drizzle on the olive oil.
  6. Add all the seasoning and mix.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden.


Cool and store in an airtight container.

Great for a savour snack with a cold beer!


I sprinkle these seeds on my Roasted Pumpkin and Red Lentil Soup.

Roll on Hallowe’en,
