Serves: 1 Cooking Time: 5mins


  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom
  • Himalayan salt
  • Olive Oil Spray



Remove seeds from fresh pumpkin. Place on a sheet of baking paper. Ensure they aren’t touching and all pumpkin is removed. Allow to dry out over night.


Pre-heat the oven to 180 C or 350 F.


Move seeds into a pile and lightly spray with olive oil (so that the spices will stick). Add a pinch of desired spices and salt.


Mix in with your fingers until all combined.


Spread out again on baking paper, put on a tray and put in the oven.


Cook for about 5mins. When it starts to smell delicious you know there is 1-2mins maximum left.


Could use any spices you like. Personally I find the salt is crucial to the popcorn taste.
