Spicy Savoury Pumpkin Seeds

EAT, family meals By October 30, 2011 Tags: , , , , , 1 Comment

*  3 cups raw pumpkin seeds

* 3 Tbs. vegetable oil
* 2 heads garlic (about 24 cloves, peeled, root ends trimmed and sliced)
* 2 tsp. ground chile de arbol powder or cayenne pepper
* 1 tsp. kosher or coarse sea salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. Toast pumpkin seeds on ungreased baking sheet 10 minutes, or until light brown, shaking sheet occasionally so seeds cook evenly.
Meanwhile, heat oil in wide skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic, and cook 10 to 12 minutes, stirring often. As garlic slices begin to brown and caramelize, watch carefully to make sure they don’t burn. Transfer to serving bowl.

Add pumpkin seeds, chili powder and salt to garlic. Stir well to coat. Serve warm or at room temperature.
