Toasted Squash Seeds

Toasted Squash Seeds


 So this is just a quick recipe to help use up some of the excess seeds that are knocking around your kitchen after all of the Halloween festivities. This works equally well for pumpkin seeds or the seeds of any kind of squash really. I have used a mix of both here.

          Cooked like this the seeds will keep happily in a jar in the store cupboard for ages! Ready for a lazy afternoon snack, to top off salads or to add to a quick pudding for dessert.
