Cumin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Cumin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

These were one part, one fabulous part, of a great dinner.  I made the pumpkin seeds in the morning and was requested to make another batch.  In fact, I made two batches with the pumpkin seeds on hand being the limiting ingredient.  Eleanor loved these so much that she went to the store and got even more so she could have them in her lunch the next day.  I guess the sour lime and the sugar make for some good flavors.

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup shelled pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Kosher salt
  • Heat the oil in the pan.  Add the pumpkin seeds and shake until mostly brown, about 4 minutes.
  • Add cumin (I used ground instead of seeds since that's what I had) and sugar and lime juice.
  • Stir.  Remove to cool on a pan and sprinkle with salt.  Let cool on a pan and break into pieces.
