5 Yummy Ways of Cooking Pumpkin Seeds

Did you know pumpkin seeds are one of the top seeds you should be eating? That's because they are rich in vitamins and help fight chronic illness. You can reap the benefits by munching on plain pumpkin seeds but that can get boring quick. So how about  cooking pumpkin seeds in new and exciting ways? You could add these crunchy seeds to soups, sauces, Thanksgiving stuffing and plenty more Fall recipes. Here are our top 5 ways of cooking pumpkin seeds:

1. GARNISH SOUP

Cucumbers are still in season so it's not too late to make this creamy chilled soup topped with crunchy pumpkin seeds. It would also make a killer garnish for traditional pumpkin soup.

2. MAKE FANCY PASTA SAUCE

Traditionally, one of the best ways of cooking pumpkin seeds have been adding them to sauces as a thickening agent. Try this outstanding recipe for spelt bread gnocchi with a pumpkin seed-spiked tomato sauce.

3. KICK UP THANKSGIVING STUFFING

Add a little more flavor to your Thanksgiving celebration by stuffing your bird with a cornbread and Italian sausage stuffing made with pumpkin seeds.

4. WHIP UP PESTO

Just take a traditional Italian pesto recipe and swap the pine nuts for pumpkin seeds. Process the same way you would regular pesto. Simply delish!
