As a child, one of my favourite parts about carving the pumpkin at Halloween was roasting the pumpkin seeds and enjoying their salty goodness.
When you buy 1/2 or even a 1/4 pumpkin make sure to go to the effort of saving those delicious seeds. You'll get more value for your money, more nutrients and there will be less waste left over.
Heat oven to 180˚C
Clean seeds and pat dry
Toss them in a bit of oil and salt to them
Cover a baking sheet with baking paper and put them on top
Bake for 3-5 minutes until dry and very slightly golden
Enjoy on salads, on top of soups or as a delicious snack that satisfies any salt and crunch craving.
