  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt plus a little more for sprinkling
  • Olive oil


  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Line your Bunk Bed basket with foil. This will make a nice little 'bowl' for your seeds. Alternatively you can line the bottom of the Big Easy basket with foil but I find the basket to be easier. Plus, you can fit two Bunk Bed baskets in the Big Easy at once.
  • Clean the pumpkin seeds. Remove all of the pulp then transfer them to a colander and rinse well with water. Drain.
  • Bring the water to a boil and stir in the salt.
  • Add the seeds and reduce to a simmer and continue simmering for 10 minutes. Drain well and transfer to a bowl.
  • Drizzle the seeds with just a few splashes of oil. Don't add much, less is more.
  • Transfer the seeds to the oil-lined basket and place inside the Big Easy.
  • Roast for 10-15 minutes. Do not let the seeds get brown, they will burn easily. They will just start turning golden and they are done. You can actually reach in (carefully) and grab one or two for testing as they roast.
  • Remove and dump the basket into a bowl and sprinkle lightly with more salt.
  • Let cool slightly then serve.
