Garlic & Oregano Winter Squash Seeds

winter squash seeds

the perfect snack, lots of fiber and protein in these nutty and fragrant winter squash seeds

Homemade, lightly salted, roasted Garlic & Oregano Winter Squash Seeds. Try to be as waste-less as possible when it comes to cooking. These seeds came from the inside of a beautiful winter squash. Try to get yourself into the habit of using as much as a fruit or vegetable as possible. Instead of throwing out the innards of some gorgeous winter squash I was cooking with, I decided to keep the seeds and make this delicious snack. Squash seeds are a great source of fiber, which aid in digestive health and lowering cholesterol, as well as plant-based protein. They also provide vitamins A & C, folate, potassium, calcium, and iron. You can be quite creative when making these seeds and experiment with different flavors of your own making.

1 winter squash, de-seeded
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp garlic powder
salt to taste
canola oil


  1. Preheat oven to 300 F.
  2. In a strainer thoroughly rinse seeds to clean them off with cold water.
  3. Next pat dry the seeds with paper towels and pinch off any strains attached to the seeds.
  4. In a small bowl combine seeds, oregano, garlic powder, a light sprinkle of salt, and a light drizzle of canola oil. Mix well.
  5. Apply seeds on a baking sheet, evenly spreading out the seeds.
  6. Put in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the seeds just begin to brown.Stir seeds around the 10 minute mark then put back for another 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. When finished, serve and enjoy!
