Chilli and Lime Pumpkin Seeds

If there’s one thing that’s universally linked to Halloween, it’s pumpkins. Oh, how I would have loved to write a post on pumpkin carving! Unfortunately, my unsteady hand and blunt kitchenware prevent me from having anything to show off about in that department.

I can, however, provide you with a delicious recipe for flavoured pumpkin seeds. These are hot, sweet and sour – the perfect combination for the chilly season that’s now upon us.

1 cup (150g) pumpkin seeds
zest of 1 lime
juice of 1/2 a lime
1 tbsp chilli flakes
1 tsp dark muscovado sugar
1 tbsp olive oil

  1. Pre-heat your oven to Gas Mark 2 (conversions here) and grease and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Mix the sugar, olive oil, salt and lime juice together then use the mixture to coat the pumpkin seeds in a large bowl.
  3. Add the lime zest and chilli flakes then give everything a good stir to make sure all the seeds are evenly coated.
  4. Spread the seeds out on the baking tray as evenly as possible.
  5. Cook on the top shelf of the oven for 45 minutes, stirring two or three times during the process.
  6. Leave to cool, then break apart with your hands if any of them have clumped together (careful, they’re a little sticky!)
