When carving your jack-o-lantern, don't throw out the seeds. Get the kids to rinse off all the orange goo, sprinkle them with any seasoning you want--you can make them sweet or savory--and roast them for a crunchy, high-fiber snack. Here's a spice combination we like.


Pumpkin seeds
Vegetable oil
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Chili powder
Kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Place pumpkin seeds on a cake pan or baking sheet. Drizzle with a little oil. Sprinkle with remaining ingredients to taste. Toss well. Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until seeds are dry and toasted.
