Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 layer Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning Optional

Instructions

Preparation

  • Preheat the air fryer to 200 ° C or 390 ° F which is usually around 3 minutes depending on the air fryer.

Cooking

  • Place a single layer of the Pepita Pumpkin Seeds underneath the air fryer basket in the bucket. This stops the seeds from flying around the cooking chamber.
  • Cook for 6-8 minutes.

Notes

  • No Oil necessary
I don't even bother to wash,just remove as much membrane as possible. I drizzle with chili and/or garlic oil. Season with herbs, whatever you like but I have been using Italian herbs a lot lately. Place in tray UNDER the basket to stop them flying around, especially as they dry out. 200 deg C for 6 - 8 minutes. Depends on size and volume, check, put on for further 2 - 3 minutes at a time. Great as a snack.
