I normally give the seeds from the Butternut squash to my pet hens as apparently they are very good for their digestion. This week, however, I am doing the #Surviveon20 challenge for Wifi Refugees. I have to live on a food and drink budget of £20 for a week as that's what 100's of refugees have to survive on. With that in mind, I decided not to waste any potential food source and tried roasting the seeds in spices for a delicious snack. I tossed them in a little oil with smoked paprika, cumin and salt.
I have to say, these were really delicious and I will definitely be making them again. The hens will just have to miss out!
- butternut squash seeds
- a few sprays of oil
- spices to coat (I used smoked paprika, cumin and a pinch of salt)
- remove any flesh from the seeds
- Spray with oil
- toss in the seasoning
- spread on a tray
- roast in the oven at 180C for 20-30 minutes or until the seeds start popping and are golden brown
- Serve and enjoy
