It is pumpkin carving season! Have you carved a pumpkin yet this year? Pumpkins are a fun halloween decoration and an excellent source of nutrition!

When carving a pumpkin, make sure you save all those slimy seeds! Pumpkin seeds are a great source of protein and fiber. They might not look very good when you first pull them out of the pumpkin but after a little wash and some seasonings, you got a tasty snack!

Follow the directions below to make your own Garlic Parmesan Pumpkin Seeds:

Place 1 cup of washed pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet and let them dry for a couple hours or overnight. 20181020_090512.jpg
