Roasted Sriracha Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkins are in abundance in October in America, and they are so versatile and fun to play with. You can carve them, decorate them, roast them and eat the flesh and/or the seeds. You can even serve food inside them

While the flesh can be used for many things, roasting the leftover seeds are a popular healthy snack. I tried this version on a whim, and they turned out to be rather tasty. It comes together very quickly and makes plenty to share or nosh on all week long. Enjoy and happy baking!
