Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
This recipe is super easy and the end result is a delicious and healthy snack. You can use any type of squash seeds not just pumpkin. I usually use spaghetti squash seeds as I cook with spaghetti squash a lot.

My favourite way to eat these is by the handful but they are also great as a salad topping. Enjoy!
