When roasting this year’s pumpkin seeds, I drew inspiration from Ricki over at Diet, Dessert and Dogs. Tired of plain ol’ pumpkin seeds coated with salt, I wanted to branch out into something more exotic and exciting. My Asian-Inspired Pumpkin Seeds have a tangy bite that will keep you going back handful after handful.
Asian-Inspired Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Seeds from one large pumpkin (washed & dried)
1 tablespoon Tamari Sauce
1 tablespoon Hot Pepper Sesame Oil
1/2 teaspoon Wasabi Powder
Sea Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add pumpkin seeds in a single layer to a large baking dish. Add all ingredients and mix thoroughly to coat seeds. Roast for approximately 30 minutes (stir every 10 minutes) until liquid is absorbed.
