Cajun-Spiced Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
2 tsp. olive oil
1 Tbs. paprika
1/2 Tbs. dried thyme
1/2 Tbs. dried oregano
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 tsp. onion powder
1/2 Tbs. garlic powder
1/2 Tbs. dried basil
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 Tbs. sea salt
1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine all the seasonings; mix well and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine cleaned pumpkin seeds with olive oil. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the seasoning mix. Coat evenly.
Place seeds on an ungreased baking sheet, in a single layer. Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes. The seeds should be slightly golden and dried.
Tip: Use the left over seasoning on popcorn, salad, baked or oven roasted potatoes, or as a rub on chicken!
