How to Make Roasted Cantaloupe Seeds
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. In a small bowl, cut the cantaloupe in half and scoop out the seeds. Squeeze and pick out the cantaloupe seeds from the fruit flesh "netting". Save the rest of the fruit for another recipe or just eat plain!
  2. In a small mesh colander, wash the seeds to remove any extra netting left behind. Return seeds to the small bowl.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425F. Add olive oil and salt and mix to combine. On a foil lined cookie sheet, spread out the seeds in a single layer. Roast for 10 minutes (checking every 3-5 minutes) until they are golden brown. If your seeds pop like popcorn, avoid this by covering with another piece of aluminum foil.
