Toasty Harvest Pumpkin Seeds

Ingredients:
raw pumpkin seeds (no shell) appx. 1/2 pound
raw sunflower seeds (no shell) appx. 1/2 pound
dried cranberries 1 cup
honey (optional) 1 tbsp.
soy sauce (or alternative like Tamari, I like Bragg’s) appx. 3 tbsp.
sea salt ( or alternative like herbs or table salt, I like coarse sea salt) appx. 1/2 tsp.

Fill a large frying pan or cast iron pan with the raw pumpkin and raw sunflower seeds so that the pan is filled to about 1/2″ depth

Sprinkle with salt

Have salt and soy sauce standing by

Turn heat on to medium and stir with a wooden spoon frequently

When the seeds are browned ( should happen in just a few minutes), remove from heat.

Stir in soy sauce ( just a quick splash of it over the top layer of seeds) moving spoon quickly to avoid burning.

Add a spoonful of honey, stirring quickly as before.

Let cool, then add in desired amount of dried cranberries, mix and serve!

Toasty Harvest Pumpkin Seeds are great on salads, as a side dish for hearty meals, like on Thanksgiving, or just as a healthy snack!
