Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, toss the pumpkin and sunflower seeds with the olive oil, garlic, Sichuan pepper, ginger, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Spread the seeds and smashed garlic mixture out on a single layer on a sheet pan.
  3. Roast for 15 minutes then remove the sheet tray from the oven to give the seeds a good stir. Place back in the oven to roast for another 10 to 20 minutes, until golden brown on top. Keep an eye on the sunflower seeds to gauge doneness. They will turn golden faster than the pumpkin seeds.
  4. Remove from the oven. Toss on the pan with the granulated sugar. Allow the seeds to cool for 5 to 10 minutes on the pan before transferring to a dish to serve.
