Don’t waste any of your butternut squash, pumpkin, or winter squash. You can roast the seeds and serve them in the nuts bowl instead of stale peanuts.
Roasted Butternut Squash Seeds
Seeds from one butternut squash
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Separate the seeds from the orange trapping strings. I do so by scooping all the goop into a bowl, filling it with water, and allowing the seeds to float to the top.
Sandwich the seeds between to paper towels to dry them.
Lay them out on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Make sure the seasoning is evenly distributed and the seeds are a single layer.
Bake the butternut squash seeds in three 10 minute intervals. Between each interval, shuffle the seeds around, then return to oven.
The butternut squash seeds are completely roasted when they are brown, crispy and crunchy.
