Pumpkins are a very important part of Halloween  and the fall. If you carve a jack-o-lantern this year, have your child scoop out the pumpkin seeds inside for you to make the Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seed Recipe below.
 
Roasted pumpkin seeds can be a healthy  snack to give the  trick-or-treaters, before they head out in search of candy.  This particular recipe uses egg whites instead of  the usual  butter or oil required in most roasted pumpkin recipes.


You will  need
:

·1 egg  white
 ·¼ cup white sugar
 ·½ teaspoon fine grained sea salt
 ·1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds (washed and dried)

Steps:

1. Preheat your oven  to 375°F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. 

2. Spray the baking  sheet with non-stick cooking spray (Parchment paper is an alternative).

3. In a medium-sized  bowl, whisk together the egg white, sugar and salt. 

4. Add the pumpkin seeds and toss well. Drain off any excess egg white (using a colander) and place  seeds in a single layer across prepared baking sheet. 

5. Bake for 10-12  minutes or until seeds are golden in colour. 

6. Remove from oven and allow to cool.  Seeds may be kept up  to 3 days in an airtight container.
