- 1-2 cups rinsed pumpkin seeds, flesh removed and patted dry
- Sea salt; approximately 1 teaspoon
- Cayenne; approximately 1/4 teaspoon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse pumpkin seeds, removing any extra pumpkin flesh. Pat seeds dry with a clean dish towel. In a small bowl, combine seeds with spices and olive oil, mixing well to coat seeds thoroughly. Spread seeds on an ungreased sheet tray and cook for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool, and enjoy.
