Happy Halloween! Recipe of the Day - Tamari Pumpkin Seeds

I sent a Fairy Princess off to school today after she could barely eat breakfast for all the excitement. It's all a little ironic since she is off sugar entirely but if we can get stoked about trick 'o treating on mom and dad's behalf, so much the better! I'm the kind of parent who wants to be as helpful as I can be...

Here is a recipe for a super delicious seasonal favourite of mine... and it's sugar free!

Roasted Tamari Pumpkin Seeds


1/4 cup tamari (or Bragg's if yo can't find tamari)
1 tsp salt
2 cups cleaned pumpkin seeds (1 large pumpkin approx)
1/4 tsp cayenne


1. Stir in the seeds with remaining ingredients until everything is evenly distributed. It's ok that there is too much tamari at this point

2. Pour seed mixture into a 8x8 baking dish and bake at 350° oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until the seeds are dry and puffy (if you have a convection oven you can turn the fan on and it will take less time). Stir the seeds frequently, once every 5-10 minutes or so.

3. When the seeds are done (all the liquid should be gone), leave them to cool in the dish, and stir occasionally to break them apart. Store in an air-tight container.
