There are Pumpkins everywhere! Some people only use them at this time of year to make Jack-O’-Lantern’s, but I am a firm believer of the waste not want not phrase. Lets use Everything!
Roast Pumpkins seeds are a delicious snack either on their own or included in a side salad. They can be sprinkled with your favourite spices, or left natural with a hint of olive oil. Either way, lets put these little gems to good use on Halloween. There’s no need to throw them away, and remember, you can make the Pumpkin flesh into a yummy soup. Check out Michelle’s recipe here.
“Pumpkins are very versatile in their uses for cooking. Most parts of the pumpkin are edible, including the fleshy shell, the seeds, the leaves, and even the flowers. In the United States and Canada, pumpkin is a popular Halloween and Thanksgiving staple.” – Wiki
