Roasted Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin Seed Pesto
This fragrant pesto features toasted pumpkin seeds and parsley -- along with dried chile and a touch of cinnamon -- in place of the usual pine nuts and basil for a seasonal variation on the Italian classic.
Decorating this crust with pastry leaves is as easy as, well, pie, but it's also beautiful with a simple crimped edge. You can make two undecorated bruleed pumpkin pies that way, if you double the filling.

Kale Slaw with Red Cabbage and Carrots
The variety of seeds and the kale make this a distinctive twist on coleslaw.
Baked Oatmeal for a Crowd with Berries and Seeds
When mixed berries get baked into creamy, cinnamon-spiced oats, the result is this warming breakfast casserole that can feed a crowd in one fell scoop. Chopped dates provide sweetness the natural way, while crunchy toasted pepitas and hemp seed hearts offer a big helping of omega-3 fatty acids.
Spicy-Sweet Maple Snack Mix
Maple syrup is teamed with cayenne pepper, vinegar, and fresh thyme to flavor this addictive party-ready blend of peanuts, pepitas, crackers, pretzels, and cereal.
Pureed Butternut Squash Soup
The secret ingredient in this easy, healthy butternut squash soup recipe is fresh orange juice, which gives the soup a bright note. Peeled, cubed squash is cooked on the stovetop with onions, ginger, and garlic until tender, and then puréed. Skip the sour cream if you want to keep the soup vegan and dairy-free, but don't miss the roasted squash or pumpkin seeds for garnish—they make a sublime finishing touch to this cozy vegetarian soup.
No-Knead Seeded Overnight Bread
Turn out a hearty, chewy-crusted loaf worthy of the best bakeries -- all without breaking a sweat. This no-knead, no-fuss oat and wheat bread is packed with pumpkin, flax, poppy, and sesame seeds. Martha made this recipe on Martha Bakes episode 505.
