Roasted Delicata Squash Seeds

Save those seeds and roast them for a delicious snack or salad topper.
Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 45 minutes


  • seeds from 1-2 Delicata squash
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt to taste


  • Once you have removed the seeds from the squash, place them into a bowl of water. Using your hands remove the pulp and place the seeds onto a towel to dry.
  • Once the seeds are completely dry. Set your oven to 275 degrees.
  • Place the seeds on a half sheet pan in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and season with kosher salt to taste.
  • Roast for 35-45 minutes. Check them every 15 minutes and flip the seeds to cook evenly. The time may be more or less depending on how dry your seeds are and how old your squash was. It's best to check them often.
  • Allow to cool before eating. They need to be completely cool before storing.


You don't have to cook the seeds right away when you remove them from the squash. You can refrigerate them for 1-3 days until you are ready to roast them.
